Thompson backs Berger for committee appointments


By Ashley Withers

WILMINGTON, NC ( -- New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger will have the chance to represent the county on several boards and committees, after being removed from most of these last year.

Commissioner Jason Thompson resigned from all boards and committees he served on as a county representative at Tuesday's board meeting and asked that Berger take his place.

"I would like to make a motion that I be removed from all of my boards and committees, and I would make a motion that Mr. Berger be appointed to those in the short term," he said. "Simply because right now he doesn't have any and he can do them."
