New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger (R) finds himself in the hot seat once again for NOT showing up at a meeting, this time one he got a scholarship to attend in Chapel Hill.
(Port City Daily) – After New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger said he’d received an unwelcome reception when he offered to settle his travel debt with the county, County Manager Chris Coudriet sent Berger an email saying he had a much different recollection of the issue.
Truth is, it shouldn’t be this complicated. It isn’t for county commissioners and other local officials across the state. If you register for a conference, attend it. Staff works to get the schedules and details taken care of, go. But this has become a sad habit with Berger and is simply a distraction from the issues that he should be focused on solving.
He ran as a conservative that would stop wasteful spending and expose corruption. To date, he has been more of a story than the issues he claimed to champiom.
