Candidate Statement

My name is Jon Mishara and I am seeking re-election to the Wayland Board of Public Works. It has been my privilege to serve the residents of Wayland on the Board of Public Works since 2010 and we have accomplished a great deal including:

  • Preserving and improving the town’s infrastructure, including water main restoration, roadway paving and reconstruction, and major intersection improvements.
  • Prioritizing capital spending so that funds are spent based on the town’s greatest needs.
  • Excellent storm and emergency response by DPW staff.
  • Ongoing maintenance of over 200 acres of open space including school grounds, athletic fields, town beach and playgrounds.
  • Attracting and retaining highly competent and dedicated DPW staff.
  • Improvements to Transfer Station, including compactor upgrades and single stream recycling.
  • Better communications with other town boards, committees and staff departments.
  • Continued focus on innovation, including proposed advanced water metering infrastructure that will improve water meter accuracy and water conservation.
  • Revised policies relating to water abatements, irrigation systems and traffic calming requests to provide more guidance to residents.
  • Maximizing efficiencies and cost savings with the new DPW facility, which was completed in June 2015 under budget.
  • Ensuring that the Board of Public Works earns the public’s trust and operates transparently to Wayland residents.

I promise to continue to be a strong advocate for the residents of Wayland as a member of the Board of Public Works.

Thank you for your support!
