While the overall budget

may not have been exceeded, Commissioner Barfield certainly went way over the amount budgeted for his position. Don't forget, the amount budgeted is to cover travel expenses for all of the Commissioners.

Mr. Barfield apparently took advantage of some Commissioners traveling less than budgeted and took the excess funds for his use.

Heaven forbid he might have liimited his travel to the amount budgeted for his position and allowed the left over funds to go into the General Fund. That's called furgality and staying within the budget.

How about a follow up? Where did he travel and for what purpose? And how, did the County specifically benefit from his travels? Can he point to one industry he called upon which is considering expansion to New Hanover County? Can he point to one project he inspected which is being considered for implementation in the County?

Or is this "feel good about me" travel similar to the City's own Ms.Padgett?
