Kingston: Committee begins search for new town administrator

Kingston’s town administrator Jill Goldsmith spent her last day on the job Friday, leaving for the job as town manager in Chatham. Kingston’s town administrator search committee met Monday night to begin to find her replacement.

That ad hoc committee quickly elected former selectman John Veracka as chairman. They elected Town Clerk Mary Lou Murzyn as clerk– a position she took to naturally, taking notes from the start of the meeting–and school committee member John Creed as vice chairman.

The committee also includes Police Chief Joseph Robello and finance committee member Paul Ricci.

The town closed applications for the job Friday. The committee will meet in closed sessions into mid-September to choose three to five candidates from more than 40 applicants to recommend to Selectmen on Sept. 13.
