Brunswick and New Hanover counties have an interesting set of conundrums on their hands. In Brunswick, county commissioner Charles Warren has drawn the ire of his fellow commissioners by attempting to remove a duly appointed member of their DSS board (Pat Sykes) and removed the press from a meeting in violation of the open meetings law.
In New Hanover, county commissioners have attempted to remove commissioner Brian Berger from the all of his boards including the DSS board. Berger remains defiant on that board vowing to stay and fight.
Tomorrow morning could be interesting and the law is ambiguous at best. The NC School of Government says that a judge will have to determine if commissioners have the authority to remove, until then. . . it’s going to be a wild ride!
