Community reacts to popular Davis bank president's firing

By  | 

DAVIS, OK - After a popular small town bank president was fired, now citizens in the community of Davis, Oklahoma, are speaking out and asking why.

Residents of Davis, Oklahoma, are in a state of shock after a beloved member of the community was abruptly fired from his job, and they claim there was no explanation given.

W.A. "Dub" Moore, Jr., president of The First National Bank of Davis, was let go by the bank's board of directors after a routine audit by the bank's regulatory agency.

Officials with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's Washington D .C. Bureau told First News they could not comment on any open bank that they regulate, but did confirm they were in an Oklahoma Bank within the past few weeks

First National Bank of Davis officials say the bank is in good shape financially, and there will be no disruption in it's day-to-day operations

Davis Mayor Ed Parks says the news of Moore's firing came as a complete shock to the community, which is still coming to grips with the news of his departure.

"Mr. Moore, to me, has been a great asset, and still is to the City of Davis He and his wife have been very instrumental in getting new equipment for the new hospital over in Sulphur. He's been very involved in the Chamber and all the organizations in Davis," Parks says.

Details in this case are very hard to come by, since facts from these audits are not public record yet. Bank officials we talked to say they are not sure themselves of the OCC's findings.
