Health Director Encouraging Interested Individuals to Apply for Board of Health Position

Wayland Health Director Julia Junghann's says candidates need not be doctors or engineers to serve on the Board of Health.

When Wayland voters head to the polls in April for the Annual Town Election, they will be electing individuals to a variety of offices, including one position on the town's Board of Health.

Health Director Julia Junghann's is encouraging any interested individual to consider running for the office.

"Interested parties need not have a background in a medical profession or engineering, but this would be an added benefit to the Board," Junghann's wrote in an email to Patch. "We are hoping for a candidate that has an interest in the town and a reasonable approach. The Board of Health covers a wide and varied range of issues and regulations."

Board member Arnold Soslow’s seat is up for election, and he does not plan to run for re-election, Junghann's explained. 

The Board of Health position is for a three-year term. It's a five-member board that typically meets twice a month, usually the second and last Mondays of the month at 7:30 p.m. 

Nomination papers are currently available at the town clerk’s office and candidates must return the paperwork, with 50 certified signatures, by Feb. 12, in order to be eligible.

Interested parties should contact Junghanns at jjunghanns@wayland.ma.us or 508-358-3617.
