New Hanover County is almost out of options to remove Commissioner Brian Berger from office – primarily because Wednesday is the deadline for state legislators to file local bills.

Berger has refused to resign time and time again. Most recently, Chairman Woody White called for his resignation in late March after his latest rants and erratic behavior left county staff and his fellow board members fearing for their safety.

But beyond Berger’s resignation, there are currently only four ways to remove an elected official in North Carolina: if the member is convicted of a felony, corruption, financial or election law violations; the board files an amotion; or the attorney general brings action on behalf of the state in Superior Court. The state legislature could also pass an act removing him.
