Ethics Commission to Reconsider Steven Dow Reprimand

The Oklahoma Ethics Commission has called a Special Meeting tomorrow, Friday, June 15, to discuss a request by Steven Dow to rescind or expunge from the record his public reprimand.

The meeting will be held at 10:15 a.m., at the State Capitol in Room 432A.

The agenda indicates former DHS Commissioner Steven Dow has submitted "written evidentiary materials in support of his request to rescind, set aside or expunge from the record his public reprimand." 

Last month Commissioners Steven Dow and Anne Roberts of the Oklahoma Commission for Human Services resigned from the Commission after a letter by the Oklahoma Ethics Commission identified a conflict of interest concerning Dow’s simultaneous service as both a DHS commissioner and chief executive officer of the Community Action Project, a charitable corporation which operates daycare and child education facilities. 

Roberts, although not named in the Ethics Commission letter, resigned to address a potential conflict between her service as a commissioner and her employment with Integris Heath.
