Renee Axt: Resigned Monday as chairwoman of the Wayne County Airport Authority. Axt was one of five board members who voted to fire Mullin last week, only two months after voting to hire her for the $250,000 job running Metro and Willow Run airports.
Renee Axt, a figure in the scandal surrounding Wayne County, resigned Monday as chairwoman of the board that runs Metro Airport.
Her departure brings to five the number of people who have left their jobs since the county acknowledged in late September that it paid a $200,000 severance to Turkia Awada Mullin when she left Wayne County to become airport CEO.
County Executive Robert Ficano, who appointed Axt to a six-year term in 2008, said in a statement that she resigned for personal reasons. He did not elaborate.
Axt didn't return a phone call seeking comment but said in a statement she was proud of her work at Metro.
"Ms. Axt has been a dedicated volunteer," he said. "She worked tirelessly for the good of the airport and was very proactive in pushing projects forward."
Axt's resignation follows that of two top Ficano aides last week and comes after Mullin and a part-time Ficano staffer were fired. On Monday, Ficano fired another aide, Michael Grundy, who had been on paid administrative leave while the FBI investigates reports that he pressured a health care firm to make payments to companies linked to Grundy's childhood friend.
Axt is a lobbyist with deep ties to Wayne County government. Her consulting firm, RCP Associates, is one of more than a dozen companies named in FBI subpoenas served on the county in October.
Axt once worked for former County Executive Edward McNamara and later as a consultant with David Katz, who was McNamara's chief of staff.
Axt also had ties to Mullin, serving on the board of a nonprofit, Edge Opportunities, that paid Mullin an additional $75,000 on top of her $200,000 county salary. Axt voted to hire Mullin at Metro. As airport board chairwoman, Axt signed Mullin's three-year, $750,000 deal in September.

But last week, as outrage built over the circumstances of Mullin's severance -- which Mullin has returned -- Axt was one of five board members who voted to fire Mullin. No one on the board would say why Mullin was let go. If the airport can't prove it had a good reason for firing Mullin, it could end up paying the remainder of her contract, about $708,000.
Mullin, who said she plans to contest her firing, had no comment Monday on Axt's resignation, her spokesman Michael Layne said.
Axt is listed in a national database of lobbyists as a lobbyist for Actron Governmental Sales, a Michigan company that supplies tethers and other electronic monitoring devices. Actron won a $3-million contract with the county in 2008 that grew to $10.2 million by 2010. Another $1.4-million contract for devices was approved by the county in September.
On at least two political contributions in 2005, Axt listed her job as a consultant with Katz's firm, Daniel Consulting. Axt's firm and Katz's firm share an office suite and a telephone number in Detroit.
The Free Press reported in May that Axt and her husband, Michael, listed a Bloomfield Township home as their "principal residence," a legal distinction that reduces property taxes on the home by about $3,400 annually.
Axt acknowledged that she has multiple residences, including one in Detroit.
Wayne County Commissioner Bernard Parker, D-Detroit, who also serves on the airport board, said Axt provided good leadership to the county.
