GOLDEN — The Jefferson County school board has censured one of its members over comments she made during a radio interview.

Board member Laura Boggs apologized Thursday after she agreed with a radio host who suggested the superintendent should be shot if the district was spending money monitoring Facebook. The district doesn't have a position like that.

According to KMGH-TV (http://tinyurl.com/b2l5ogu ), superintendent Cindy Stevenson said it was inappropriate to joke about a shooting, especially in a school district that experienced multiple shootings, including Columbine.

Radio host Jason Worley did not respond to an email seeking comment.
