The Lumberton Board of Aldermen Tuesday night voted in executive session to terminate City Clerk Stephanie Mullins.
Mullins was appointed to the position in 2009 after serving as deputy clerk. Reached by phone Mullins said she is currently out on family leave until March, 8, and had not been informed of her termination by anyone from the city. She said the firing does not surprise her because the mayor and certain members of the board have been trying to get rid of her for several months.
Attempts to reach the mayor and several board members for comment were unsuccessful.
