DeMaine Kitchen has delinquent tax issues and other financial problems

YOUNGSTOWN — Mayoral candidate DeMaine Kitchen, the mayor’s chief of staff/secretary, has delinquent tax issues and other financial problems dating back to 2005.

Among the problems was a 2007 foreclosure on his former house at 3302 Castalia Ave., that was purchased by his father, and numerous garnishments for failing to pay First USA Bank, Home Savings and Loan Co., the state Department of Taxation, Mahoning County for property taxes on his current house at 77 Struthers Liberty Road, and even the city of Youngstown for not paying income taxes in 2009.

“I had a difficult financial time in the mid-2000s and I’m not shying away from those problems,” said Kitchen, an independent mayoral candidate. “During the bad times of the mid-2000s. I was working a commission-based job, had one income to support a wife and three kids. There’s no excuses. It is what it is.”

This man in no way has the skills needed to run this city. Youngstown people deserve a well-qualified mayor.
