March 9, 2005
Board of Selectmen Chairman Betsy Connolly and School Committee
Chairman Lori Frieling have decided against seeking re-election on
April 26. As a result, the remaining candidates who filed before the
March 8 deadline are assured of election.
Also uncontested are seats on the Road Commission, Park and Recreation
Commission, Housing Authority, Water Commission, Board of Assessors,
Trust Fund Commission and the position of moderator.
The uncontested candidates are:
Moderator: Peter Gossels
Selectmen: Joseph F. Nolan, Alan J. Reiss
Road Commission: Mark Santangelo
School Committee: Louis M. Jurist, Barbara J. Fletcher
Park & Recreation: Anna Meliones
Housing Authority: Susan Weinstein
Water Commission: W. Edward Lewis
Assessor: Marcia D. Malmfeldt
Trust Fund Commission: John B. Wilson
The contested races:
Lynne J. Lipcon, Aida A. Gennis and Mimi Sohn Licht will vie for two
Library Trustee positions.
Lynne A. Dunbrack and Stephen E. Tise will run for one Planning Board
Anna M. Ludwig, Philip Pattison and Arnold R. Soslow will run for two
three-year positions on the Board of Health. William A. Currier and
Marie M. Durant will run for a single one-year term on the board.
One seat on the Park and Recreation Commission will remain empty for
lack of a candidate.
WVN will cover the election campaigns as they develop. With the heads
of Wayland's two most important elected bodies dropping out at the
last moment (they took out papers but didn't file them by the
deadline), voters' attention will probably focus largely on a tax
override of about $2 million.
