SLED investigating aviation authority after airport director resigns

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the Charleston County Aviation Authority board following the resignation of an airport director.

Thom Berry, SLED spokesman, said Tuesday a criminal investigation was underway regarding the circumstances that preceded the resignation of Charleston International Airport Director Sue Stevens.

Stevens' announced her resignation in July via a letter to the authority's chairman, Andy Savage.  The director told Savage she was mistreated and verbally abused by "a minority membership" of the board.

Savage said he was shocked at Stevens' decision, which becomes effective next Monday.  In August, the board voted to hire SC Sen. Paul Campbell as her replacement.  Campbell, who represents Berkeley County, said he can handle serving in the legislature and directing the airport at the same time.

Berry would not release any details on the investigation.  Continue checking Live5News.com for updates.
