Vacancy on health board
By MARK SARDELLA
WAKEFIELD - The Board of Health last night reluctantly accepted the resignation of Ann McGonigle Santos from the board. McGonigle Santos won a seat on the Board of Selectmen in the April 30 Town Election.
Typically a seat on a board vacated between elections is filled by a joint meeting of the remaining board members and the Board of Selectmen who then appoint a new member until the next regular election when the appointed member may run for election.
WHS grad, RN Jamie Smith Daly, colleagues in finish-line heroism
(Editor’s Note: The following letter from Jim Smith details the heroic work of his daughter and her colleagues at the finish line of the Boston Marathon yesterday.)
My daughter Jamie Smith Daly is an ER nurse at MGH (Massachusetts General Hospital). Yesterday, as she has done for several years, she was doing volunteer work in Med Tent A at the Marathon finish line when the bombs went off.
A 2001 WHS graduate and a three-sport athlete, she was primarily a soccer player, a four year varsity player for Meg McKenna’s teams. After HS it was on to nursing school at Endicott college.
