Comparison of trips to D.C.

Body

The week before nine city officials spent $19,000 on a trip to D.C. for a conference, New Hanover County officials went on a similar trip.

Due to budget struggles, the county decided not to send all of the county commissioners to Washington.

The three county officials spent $4,300 on their trip to the National Association of Counties Legislative Conference. That’s more than $14,000 less than the city spent on their trip.

If the county had sent as many officials to its conference the cost would have been comparable.

City officials say they wanted to have more voices in support of Wilmington.
