Jason Thompson is one of the newly elected county commissioners. Thompson's leaving the Wilmington City Council to serve the entire county. He will resign at the end of this month. The person who is filling his seat will be appointed by the city council. To apply, you have to fill out an application and speak at the next council meeting. Jason Thompson believes the person to fill his seat should have previous experience serving the community. “It should be somebody who's been active in the community, or maybe served on some boards or commissions. Needed is a willingness to work on the behalf of the citizens not just somebody out of the blue that can do a good job.” Thompson said the council will discuss the applicants at their next meeting and will have his replacement by January.
