DeMaine Kitchen resigns

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - DeMaine Kitchen has resigned as the Youngstown mayor's chief-of-staff just days before the findings of an alleged sexual harassment investigation are scheduled to be made public.

Kitchen's resignation letter to Youngstown Mayor Chuck Sammarone, says he's taking the time to pursue career opportunities in the private sector.

Kitchen, who ran as an independent candidate for mayor in November, lost the election to former county commissioner John McNally.

It was during that political campaign that allegations became public that Kitchen had sent unwanted texts and made advances toward city special events director Lindsey Hughes.

Youngstown Law Director Anthony Farris tells 21 News that he "tentatively" expects the results of the investigation to be given to him on Friday.

He will then meet with the parties involved and by Friday afternoon the findings should be made public.
