The Waxhaw Board of Commissioners voted to remove Mayor Daune Gardner from the CLT Transportation Board.

The group removed her by a 4-1 vote on in a special meeting on Tuesday afternoon. According to the North Carolina State Ethics Commission, Gardner recently filed an NC SEI form late and was fined $250.

As a result, Mayor Pro Tem Michael Stewart accused Gardner of neglecting her duties.

The meeting didn't start off well for Gardner, she was five minutes late. When the mayor did arrive, the mood was awkward and tense.

"It was a matter you could have picked up the phone and called me and spoke privately about," Gardner said to Stewart. "As a colleague and gentleman, I would have expected that."

According to Stewart, Gardner's SEI form tardiness is a public issue and as a result, he made a motion to remove her from the CLT Transportation Board. The motion passed 4-1.

According to Gardner, the Waxhaw Board of Commissioners have no authority to take that vote.

"I filed some paperwork late," Gardner said. "I certainly was not the only person in the state of North Carolina who didn't file paperwork on time."

According to the mayor pro tem, this is just another strike against Gardner, who has been arrested twice, accused of drinking and driving.

"You can play the innocent victim mentality if you would like to," Stewart said. "The truth is, there is a documented history of inabilities to perform duties."

The vote won't impact Gardner's other duties as mayor, including leading a team building retreat next week.
