In reporting "Behind the scenes in the superintendent's office an interesting confrontation was caught on camera.
Erin Comerford one of the exempt employees working in central office hired as an executive administrator in the office of the Superintendent of School James A. Williams assailed Buffalo News blogger Mary Pasciak yesterday while she attempted to get additional coverage of the events that unfolded after the special meeting of the Buffalo Board of Education.
Comerford was one of several exempt employees the Superintendent Williams hired in July 2009. News blogger Pasciak disclosed in her blog, the School Zone, "Four exempt employees do not appear to meet the minimum qualifications for their jobs," one of them Comerford. Pasciak alleged Comerford didn't have the three years administrative experience listed on the job posting.

When Popiolkowski asked what she met, she responded "...really unqualified and everything else in the paper..." while she admonished them for not waiting in the outer office and directed them to wait there saying, "we've enough of you, "telling them their attempts to interview the superintendent was "borderline harassment."
