“Heated” Exchange Interrupts Penfield Board of Education Meeting

June 9, 2021

Tuesday night, there was an incident at the Penfield Board of Education meeting.

According to witnesses, after the public comment section, a man charged the stage. However, it is not yet clear why this occurred.

The district responded and stated:

“The Penfield Board of Education holds a public comment period at each meeting. This is a time for residents to share comments and concerns with the Board. Following the public comment period at tonight’s meeting, an exchange between a resident and a Board member became heated. The situation escalated and the meeting was immediately recessed. Since all meetings are also streamed and accessible online, the public was cleared and the meeting was reconvened in a virtual format so that the Board could complete its business.”
