All nine Wake County school board members are at today's meeting.
After the end of the policy committee meeting, board member Debra Goldman blamed the recent media reports about the 2010 burglary of her home on estranger husband Steven Goldman, who has denied leaking the police narrative report to the media.
"Stop the tabloid journalism," Goldman told a gaggle of reporters. "Stop reporting the false allegations."
Goldman passed to reporters a recent administrative law judge ruling that found that John Price was improperly fired by State Auditor Beth Wood. She said reporters should focus on that case instead.
Goldman also reiterated that she hadn't intended Cary police to file a report when she raised concerns to an officer about the comments that board vice chairman Keith Sutton had made during the Sept. 25 closed-session discussion.
Sutton, who was also interviewed by several reporters today, once again denied having threatened Goldman while saying the comments made by both sides were heated that day. He declined to elaborate because the words were in closed session.
"I didn't threaten any board member," Sutton said.
Sutton also said the controversy over the 2010 police report and the complaint that Goldman had made about him were "distracting" the board from doing its work.
Board member Chris Malone is at today's meeting but declined comment on the police report, saying he wouldn't be able to speak about it until after Election Day. He's not sitting in his normal seat in the board conference room next to Goldman. He's sitting at the opposite side of the table.
