The three all have said the first item on their agenda will be what to do with solid waste and WASTEC.

In Brunswick County, it’s also a changing of the guard.

Long-time Commissioner Bill Sue is stepping down after nearly two decades in office. Fellow Republican Frank Williams will take Sue’s seat.

Commissioner Charles Warren is also leaving. He’s replaced by Pat Sykes, who defeated Warren in May’s Republican primary.
