Here is the speech by Jen Petersen during public comments at the 3/7/2022 school board meeting. Petersen slams school board member Nicole Cole on her Facebook comments and also reads excerpts from books in Spotsylvania County schools. Cole interrupts Petersen because she thinks that reading the excerpts are inappropriate. Therein lies the hypocrisy by Cole. If educators and Cole are defending these books in school libraries for students to read, then why is it a problem to read these excerpts out loud?
