YOUNGSTOWN — Lisa A. Antonini 41, of Gladwae Drive, Youngstown, resigned her $68,275-a- year job as Mahoning County treasurer this afternoon, just a few hours after the U.S. Attorney filed an information in federal court this morning charging her with one count of honest services mail fraud.
“I am ashamed and embarrassed by my actions. I deeply regret having disappointed the people of our community who placed their trust and confidence in me. I am sincerely sorry for having let so many people down,” Antonini wrote in a statement to the media.
“I am fully prepared to accept the consequences of my actions, and, when the appropriate time comes, I look forward to having the opportunity to rebuild and resume my life,” she wrote to Atty. Dave Betras, chairman of the Democratic Party.
Antonini announced her resignation effective immediately in a one-sentence letter to Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State.
