BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A Ferndale School Board member is in hot water over an interview he did on a KGMI radio talk show.

The Ferndale Record reports that fellow school board members didn’t take too kindly to various comments that board member Hugh Foulke made during the Saturday Morning Live show with Kris Halterman on Feb. 1.

In the interview, Foulke explains how he voted last November when the school board decided to bring a bond before the voters.

Play Hugh Foulke on vote

A document presented at the board’s February 11 meeting said that Foulke’s comment seemed to imply that the other board members had no conscience.

The document insists that Foulke is not being punished, but that the board wanted to express their concerns to Foulke so he would consider them in the future.
