Stitt Announces Another Resignation

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — David Ostrowe is resigning as Gov. Kevin Stitt’s Digital Transformation and Administration secretary, Stitt’s office announced late Friday.

Stitt said in a statement that he had accepted the resignation of Ostrowe, who “will focus on his successful restaurant management business and pursue other personal interests.”

Ostrowe’s resignation takes effect Sept. 7.

Ostrowe was indicted for bribery in December for allegedly attempting to pressure two Oklahoma Tax Commission members to drop penalties against an ex-lawmaker’s business. But Attorney General Mike Hunter later dropped those charges, citing a potential conflict of interest within his office. Hunter later resigned.

Stitt announced Thursday that his general counsel, Jason Reese, also planned to step down after working in the position for less than one year.
