      Dear Wayland Voter,

      Voters approved a property tax override of $1.896 million
      Tuesday by a 55-45 percent margin, elected a Finance
      Committee member to the Board of Selectmen and returned two
      incumbents to the School Committee. A $1.93 million debt
      exclusion passed by a wide margin.

      Steve Correia joins Joe Nolan, who was elected to a second
      term. Alan Reiss, seeking a second term on the Board, finished
      third. Mark Santangelo finished fourth but retains his seat on the
      Board of Road Commissioners.

      Property tax bills will rise by about 7 percent.

      The winning percentage for the override was about the same
      as for a $2.1 million override in 2006. This year's voter turnout
      was down from 5,419 to 4,446, or 51 percent The override
      carried Precincts 1, 3 and 4.

      Unofficial results (N.B. Some figures were incorrect in the earlier
      WVN Alert though they didn't change results):

      Board of Selectmen
      Joe Nolan 2,262
      Steve Correia 1,881
      Alan Reiss 1,667
      Mark Santangelo 1,602

      School Committee
      Barb Fletcher 2,241
      Louis Jurist 1,967
      Jeff Baron 1,365
      Steven Glovsky 908

      Question 1 (override)
      Yes 2,404
      No 1,944

      Question 2 (debt exclusion)
      Yes 2,704
      No 1,570

      An unusually large number of write-in votes delayed counting.
      There were no announced candidates for some posts. Some
      incumbents didn't submit candidacy papers and relied on
      write-ins. Write-ins also elected non-incumbents: John Knapp to
      the Board of Assessors, Simone Mardas to the Board of Health,
      Ed Lewis to the Board of water Commissioners and Bret Francis
      to the Housing Authority. Unofficial results showed Francis with 4

      Tallies for water commissioner and the Housing Authority were
      still unfinished this morning.
