Baldwin must return campaign contribution to her dad


A Youngstown Municipal Court candidate improperly accepted a $1,500 cash contribution from her father, but says she is rectifying the situation.

The cash contribution limit is $100.

Carla Baldwin, a Democrat running for the open judicial seat, listed the cash donation from her father, Charles E. Baldwin, on her pre-primary campaign finance report filed late last week. The cash was given April 8 to her campaign, according to the report.

“It was an oversight,” Baldwin said. “We will be filing an amended report. It will be given back to him.”
