NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - New Hanover County Commissioners are going to try something new with its annual State of County Address. Instead of the typical speech from the chairman of the board, each commissioner will be featured in a thirty minute segment.
Chairman Woody White says this unique approach gives county residents a chance to hear from all of the commissioners.
"It will allow the citizens to see a real personal, unfiltered view of their elected officials," White said.
In addition to the commissioners' segments, the County Manager will be featured.
The thirty minute segments begin airing Monday, June 24 on The Government Channel.
White says this gives voters easy access to the people they put in office.
"You know they vote for us--they see us sworn in--but they don't really have a lot of interaction with us. Next week, when this starts airing, they're going to have thirty minutes a night with each one of us.
NHCTV can be seen throughout New Hanover County on Time Warner channel 13 and Charter Communications channel 5.
