WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County Commissioners talked about a lot of issues during a town hall meeting at Williston Middle School last night, but several times questions via Twitter brought the commissioners back to the ongoing issues involving Commissioner Brian Berger, including the other commissioners asking him to resign recently.
This video includes the raw video we shot during those parts of the meeting, including what Berger had to say about his fellow commissioners and responses from Chairman Jonathan Barfield and Vice Chairman Jason Thompson.
Again, this is RAW video, and has not been edited beyond the use of the record button on the camera.
