Thomas, former Kingston TA, lands new job as city manager

Kingston’s former town administrator, Jim Thomas.

CLAREMORE, OK- “The vote was unanimous and an enthusiastic crowd applauded the council’s decision.”

That’s what the Claremore Daily Progress wrote to describe their city council’s decision to hire Kingston’s former town administrator, Jim Thomas, as Claremore’s new city manager.

Claremore is a city in Northeastern Oklahoma, close to Tulsa, with a population of 18,000.

Claremore’s city council hired Thomas on November 7th.

Upon Thomas’ hiring, he told the Claremore City Council, “it is comforting to know that whether you’re from the northeast or Oklahoma or wherever municipal governments are still struggling with the same problems.”

Thomas resigned as Kingston’s town administrator in early July after two members of the selectmen office testified against Thomas in court. Thomas was accused of “bullying,” intimidation and, harassment.

Earlier this year, in April, Thomas was cleared of harassment charges but complaints about Thomas’ leadership style continued until his resignation in July.

This is Thomas’ first job since voluntarily resigning from his Kingston post in July.

Kingston is beginning the search for a new town administrator while Nancy Howlett continues to serve as Kingston’s acting-town administrator.
