CHICO, Calif. -- The Chico City Council voted last night to remove Steve Breedlove from his position as a Chico Airport Commissioner.

Mayor Sean Morgan said the decision boiled down to Breedlove's actions at the council meeting two weeks ago. 

The mayor said Breedlove helped start a chant that disrupted the Chico City Council meeting. This was a move, the mayor said, was "bad as a representative of the city government."

The meeting two weeks ago was interrupted three times by loud protests that eventually led to the council chambers being cleared.

Action News Now spoke with Breedlove and Morgan about the decision that was made last night.

"Me as a private citizen is completely different in my capacity as a commissioner. I did my best to serve the people of Chico, not to serve the Morgan administration," said Breedlove.

"Leave the activism to people who have nothing better to do on a Tuesday night than go I don't have enough, I don't have enough! Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme. That doesn't help the business of the people at all," said Morgan.

Breedlove served in this position for two years.

Five city council members voted yes, one voted no and one abstained.
