I'm sorry, but I was at that meeting last night. Social is 6:30 and people trickle in from 6:30 to anytime after 7. There is NO RULE about who has to come (other than executive team and scheduled speakers.) Elected officials DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND. Brian was not speaking, he didn't even have to be there.
You all are manufacturing news. WWAY was there with a reporter and camera man literally stalking Brian.
THERE IS NOT A STORY HERE.
Many other people came late. Many were at the redictricting hearing at UNCW first. These meetings are volunteer, not mandatory and many do not attend. Jason Thompson never comes. Is that a story? Some left early. Ted Davis left early. Is that a story?
Folks, this is blalant news manipulation by WWAY who clearly has a vendetta against Brian Berger.
"Fellow commissioners appeared to be in good spirits?" Ted Davis was the only other commissioner there. Only 1 from school board was there and only one other elected official, Judge Criner, attended, a and she came late because of a prior conflict.
Brian was not the ONLY one avoiding your intrusive cameras.
Let's just see if this makes it into print......
