This whole situation seems a little "fishy" to me... Karyn Crichton and Brian Berger are both from Maryland and then came here and bought a house - listed as an unmarried couple. Then, Crichton got a job in 2006 with the NHC Planning Department as an Administrative Specialist...which apparently makes you qualified to be a planner, because she became one in 3 short years of working as a glorified secretary. I know she was gong to school for her MPA during this time, but she was promoted to planner BEFORE she graduated!
The article states, "According to court documents, Crichton moved out of the home because of psychological, verbal and physical abuse." Now really, are we supposed to believe that she filed paperwork with the court that she was abused -- BUT she served as the representatives from NHC with him for the Wilmington Urban Area Bike/Ped Committee? The Bike/Ped members advise the Transportation Advisory Committee members... So again I ask...are we really supposed to believe that she is fearful of being abused but advises him for a committee?
Her profile on LinkedIn indicates that she is not above lying. Her profile lists that she has worked for New Hanover County as a Planner since 2007...definitely NOT true. I guess she is just stretching the truth...like them being married.
I wish that WWAY would look into the corruption at ALL levels of the government and find out why a seemingly unqualified person was promoted to a position that they lacked the requisite knowledge and education to have...Why this same person was listed as a reference on Berger's board applications...Why the whitepages show her address as a 1/2 -- indicating an apartment -- in a structure that is listed as a single-family home by the tax department. It seems that she has been getting away with an awful lot of things since she moved here with her boyfriend, Berger.
