WWAYTV3, please, again, the way you report the news has various cause and effect on everyone. So, if the man is busy and honestly told you he had to iron a shirt, maybe he has to be somewhere for some purpose. His job is not to stop and talk to the news, so if he is too busy to talk to you, it should not effect the public's perception of him. As a news organizaiton, please report the news, not the speculation.
Maybe attend the public meetings and ask the questions then. Despite public opinion being a New Hanover County Commissioner does not mean he has to talk to the media about anything. He is serving the community and not serving you (WWAYTV3).
Furthermore, I think more controversy is being stirred up in the local media than actually exists. Again, you are a news organization and not an entertainment organization. There are about 22 other hours per day where your local airwaves are chock full of Entertainment Tonight like platforms. The few hours in which the news has dwlindled down to, should be just that, THE NEWS!
