One of the topics of discussion, a republican whose name and face has been everywhere the past few weeks. New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger’s issues were discussed but only for several seconds. Media was not allowed inside the executive session but leaders of the NHCRP said less than a minute was spent talking about the commissioner. In that time frame though a motion was made.

“The issue has been postponed indefinitely,” said NHCRP Chairwoman Rhonda Amoroso. “That is what came out of the meeting tonight.”

The party has put the issues around Berger to rest. NHCRP will not take a position on the controversy that has surrounded the commissioner this year; from an alleged suicide attempt to domestic issues involving his ex-girlfriend, Heather Blaylock.

As for Berger, he was in attendance. Berger said very little as he walked away from reporters but he did stop after asked how he would move on.

“What’s in the past is in the past,” said NHC Commissioner Brian Berger. “I’m very encouraged with all the support I have gotten.”

Those inside Thursday night’s closed-door meeting said the party was asked by the NHCRP board if anyone wanted to speak about Berger but no one did. When asked for his reaction to that Berger declined to comment and was ushered away.
