Sources report that Assistant District Attorney David Iski, brought the matter forth to clerk staff, stating that efforts to remove the publications from the Claremore Daily Progress were underway.
Additionally, the efforts were being made as a direct result of the news coverage that the county had been receiving from the Claremore Daily Progress.
“I was not aware of the statements by David Iski and nor do I believe it,” Thacker said. “All of my dealings with David have been professional. I don’t believe he would make any effort to retaliate against any local business.”
The Claremore Daily Progress contacted the commissioners and district attorney’s office for comment.
“I was not aware the item was placed on the agenda,” Commissioner Dan DeLozier said.
Iski and Commissioner Mike Helm were unavailable for comment.
