PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- After much controversy over the Pender County Health Department and claims of mismanagement, the health director is calling it quits.
The Pender County Board of Health began its meeting Tuesday night with a closed-session discussion. Just minutes later, chair Roberta Bost announced that Dr. Jack Griffith will retire on September 30.
Bost says she does not know when the county will begin the search process for a new health director. Bost says the county will contact the state in the next few weeks for some guidance on the situation.
