ONLY ON 3: Berger now wishes he hadn't sent "manifesto" email


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) - The fallout continues after New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger launched an e-mail tirade at county staff and fellow commissioners.

We talked with Berger after an event this morning. He told us his e-mails came from frustrations that another commissioner had excluded him from meetings with experts about a pollution issue. He also said in hindsight he wish he could retract his lengthy, rambling e-mail critical of staff and commissioners.

"It does read like a manifesto," Berger said, "And it is certainly conducive to to creating the perception that I'm a crazy person, because it's typically crazy people that write manifestoes, but I don't live in a log cabin in the woods in Montana."
