Contractors help Wilmington with Irene clean-up

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The crew contracted by the City of Wilmington started removing debris from Hurricane Irene today.

Because of the large volume of debris, the city has decided to activate its storm debris pick-up contract. That means crews from a Florida-based company giving an extra hand to city workers to help clean up wilmington for the next couple weeks.

“They’re out on the streets today, and that is no less than 12 additional crews working ten hour days six days per week, and they’re focusing throughout the city, but particularly on areas that had not yet received pick-up service last week,” city spokesman Dylan Lee said.

The crews will stay on the job for the city until all of the debris has been picked up off the streets.

Wilmington council candidate says Berger must resign

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE FROM NAPIER FULLER) — Friends, For the sake of New Hanover County’s future, the time has come for County Commissioner Brian Berger to step aside. I support Commissioners Barfield, Thompson, Catlin, and Davis in urging Mr. Berger to resign immediately. Our elected leaders have important work ahead to find solutions to our region’s economic crisis.

We cannot afford to deepen this economic crisis by allowing constant distractions to persist in our local government.

I became personally acquainted with Mr. Berger in 2010 as we were both candidates in the Republican primary. I was impressed with Berger’s high energy on the campaign trail.

There is no shame in suffering from mental illness, and freed from the stresses of public service, I trust he will get his life back on tract.

We cannot have three more years of such disruption; Berger must resign.

Sincerely yours,

PS: In my race for City Council, I’ve spoken with hundreds of residents in the last few weeks. The #1 question I get from voters isn’t about the economy, but “when is Berger going to resign?” There are more important issues at hand…

Napier Fuller
Candidate for Wilmington City Council
