WAKEFIELD — Two women will lead the Board of Selectmen for the next year, as Ann McGonigle Santos was chosen as the board’s new chairman and Betsy Sheeran as vice chairman when the board reorganized this week.

Sheeran nominated Santos as chairman. Selectman Phyllis Hull nominated Sheeran for the post of vice chairman. Both votes were unanimous.

Santos takes over the chairman’s gavel from Brian Falvey, who chaired the board for the past year. In April, Falvey was reelected to his second three-year term on the board.

Board members thanked Falvey for his service as chairman and congratulated Santos on her new post.
