    Paulson has been under fire from other board members and in February board members David Styer, Penny Burstad, and Heather Klanderman criticized Paulson for his communications with outside groups, [1] particularly Menomonie Cares. Most of this criticism revolved around a letter sent from Menomonie Cares about the board's decision to fund expansions to the Menomonie High School sports complex. At the meeting board member Burstad attempted to have the board have a new election of board officers, but the board did not take action on her proposal.

At the meeting board member Burstad attempted to have the board have a new election of board officers, but the board did not take action on her proposal.

    Paulson was also criticized at the last board meeting on Feb. 11 by citizen Glenda Jones who felt that Paulson should make a stronger statement about a kerfuffle on social media involving her family. 

    The presidency of the school board has been fraught with drama for several years now. President Jay Fahl resigned in Jan. 2018 and was charged with a misdemeanor count of prostitution shortly thereafter. Former president Colleen Davis resigned in 2015 after being charged with theft at her job at UW-Stout. 

    Video of the upcoming meeting should be available here by 2/27/2019.
