Official count rejects Monkey Junction annexation

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- As expected, property owners in Monkey Junction have said a resounding no to annexation by the City of Wilmington.

The New Hanover County Board of Elections certified the petitions today. Elections Director Marvin McFadyen says 75.35 percent of owners returned petitions against annexation.

The City of Wilmington joined a lawsuit to stop the petitions from being counted, but a judge in Wake County denied the motion last week.
