WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County’s former director of Parks, Gardens and Senior Resource Center is no longer challenging his termination.
The county says Jim McDaniel has withdrawn his appeal of the county’s decision to fire him September 24.
The county considers the matter closed.
McDaniel said in a statement, “I have decided to rescind my appeal for my termination of September 24. I accept the situation I find myself and I do not wish to continue to put my wife, family and friends through any more emotional stress by continuing through a process which may or may not have an outcome I desire. I only wish to focus on our future together, but I’m proud of the accomplishment of the last seven years in regards to the Parks, Senior Resources and especially Airlie Gardens. I wish the County well and I appreciate Mr. Coudriet’s time and efforts he has afforded me in this process.”
