Selectman refuses to leave board seat

A Plymouth County judge will decide whether longtime town volunteer Ronald Gleason still lives in Kingston and can remain a selectman and Planning Board member, as the controversy over Gleason’s residency continues to roil this town of 13,000.  

Gleason, who spends most of his time in Florida, says he’s fighting to stay in office because he has “unfinished business,” citing the selectmen’s upcoming search for a town administrator. But critics say the 68-year-old shouldn’t be part of the decision-making in Kingston when he is no longer a town resident.
