Nine candidates lost the race for two seats on the Saugus school board Tuesday night, but district Supt. Chris Wilson may wind up the biggest loser. His severest critics won the race, beating nine other candidates, including Wilson's only defender, incumbent Peggy A. Marrone. The election has shifted the balance of power on the five-member panel, which formerly supported Wilson's policies by a 3-2 margin, said board member Marilynn Blaylock.

Gary Ordog, a toxicologist at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, said tests on nine individuals yielded varying and high levels of the chemicals arsenic, formaldehyde and phenol. Ordog said he did not believe there would be any major consequences to their health.
