Woody White is seeking a second four-year term as a New Hanover County Commissioner. He’s competing against six other Republican candidates for one of three open seats in the March 15th primary.
In June of 2015, White voted against the proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2015 / 16, which ultimately passed in a three-to-two vote. The commissioners who approved the budget, as well as staff members who recommended it, say the two-cent property tax increase pays for voter-approved bonds. Woody White insists that the hike was – and is – unnecessary.
