U.S. Congressman Mike McIntyre released the following statement on Brunswick County being removed from the Wilmington Metropolitan Statistical Area:
Congressman McIntyre stated, ""It makes no practical, economic, or common sense for Brunswick County to be pulled out of the Wilmington Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and placed in the Myrtle Beach MSA. Our office is working with local officials and leaders to gather information so that we can appropriately respond to this unfortunate decision. We will do all that we can to reverse this decision."
