I am stunned and disgusted with Waxhaw Commissioners Kirkpatrick and Diller as well as the mayor. Their actions during Monday’s meeting were reprehensible. First, they voted to keep Brian Haug’s empty commissioner seat open. Then they voted to not bring the issue up for another six months. The statute says a vacancy that occurs in an elective office of a city shall be filled by appointment of the city council. Kirkpatrick and Diller and Mayor Gardner (that’s right everyone, she now has voting power) completely disregarded the intent of the law by voting to keep the vacant seat open. That’s at least six months of the Kirkpatrick-Diller-Mayor Gardner show.
Six months at the least, 11 at the most of those three ruling Waxhaw without a care in the world about Waxhaw’s residents or what is best for Waxhaw. That’s at least six months of more unethical behavior by both Mayor Gardner and Commissioner Kirkpatrick. Unethical behavior that goes undealt with since they won’t vote to bring themselves up on ethics violation charges.
I am disgusted. I am worried about Waxhaw. Between now and election time, those three can cause much havoc in Waxhaw, as I expect they will. I don’t understand how those two continually get away with unethical behavior. They should have stepped down by now, but they are too prideful and show obvious lack of concern or care for Waxhaw.
