FIRST ON 3: Thompson to Berger: Put up or shut up
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — As we told you yesterday, New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger sent another scathing e-mail this week to fellow county leaders. Now some his colleagues are firing back.
Berger’s latest e-mail comes nearly a month after he was not re-appointed to several community boards.
We caught up with Berger and Commissioner Jason Thompson today to ask when this battle will finally end.
Commissioners met this afternoon for an agenda briefing. Afterward, Commissioner Thompson said Berger’s e-mails to his fellow commissioners are just silly. He says there is no reason for Berger keep asking the same thing over and over again, referring to Berger’s consistent allegations that his removal from boards was illegal.
“I think just publicly we need to have a big meeting and air it all out, and if you can prove something, prove it, and if you can’t, then shut up about it,” Thompson said.
Thompson says he does not think the conflict between Berger and the rest of the board will end until Berger finally resigns.
