Jim Thomas took over as Kingston’s town administrator last week, saying one of his priorities is to lead a review of Kingston’s master plan. The town has not reviewed its master plan since the ’90s, but experience suggests it should be reviewed every five years. “The demographics have changed,” Thomas said Wednesday. “We need to make sure our vision is still on course.” Another priority is economic development, he said. Thomas, 51, who previously was town administrator for West Warwick, R.I., has worked in town government for 25 years. After meeting with department heads and other town workers, Thomas said, “People have made me feel welcome.’’ - Robert Knox
