Multiple sources have told Leif Wright (with MuskogeeNOW.com) and myself that John Tyler Hammons' nominee to replace Bob Luttrull on the city council is actually his mother's boss.
Craig Koele, Hammons' choice, is the CEO of Solara Hospital, where Kathy Hammons is apparently an employee.
MuskogeeNOW was the first to report on this, but was unable to get comments from either of the two Hammons' or Koele.
We were told that there have been instances of sexual harassment at Solara, and that Koele did nothing to take care of the situation.
If these stories are true, and given the close relationship between Hammons' and Koele, it would be a huge mistake for the city council to vote in Koele as Bob Luttrull's replacement.
