Former Youngstown candidate repays part of improper contribution

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Ohio Elections Commission will review a $4,000 cash contribution made to former Mayoral candidate Demaine Kitchen.

The Mahoning County Board of Elections requested the review of the cash contribution made by then Youngstown Mayor Chuck Sammarone.  State law doesn't permit cash contributions of more than 100 dollars.

Kitchen paid $2,500 restitution to Sammarone on Tuesday. According to the board of elections, Kitchen has 21 days to pay back the remaining $1,400 balance to Sammarone.

Kitchen served as Mayor Sammarone's chief of staff until his resignation in December after unsuccessfully running for mayor as an independent candidate.

Kitchen's resignation followed the findings of an independent investigation that concluded that he verbally sexually harassed a city employee.
