WELLESLEY

Last night's election results are in, and public policy expert Gregory B. Mills has won the race to fill the Selectman’s seat being vacated by Vincent Juliani Jr.

According to town clerk Kathy Nagle, Mills won 86 percent of the vote, compared to 14 percent garnered by businessman Lewis Zafferes.

Mills, while acknowledging the need to focus on town finances, emphasized a desire to maintain the quality of town services. Zaffres focused on a desire to fend off Proposition 2.5 overrides. Asked whether the overwhelming support for him says anything about where voters’ priorities are, Mills said, “I hope so.”

Fewer than 10 percent of registered voters turned out for Tuesday’s elections. Mills will be sworn into office Wednesday night at town hall and take his seat with the next Selectmen’s meeting Monday, March 12.
