One of the Democrats running for Youngstown mayor is criticizing another candidate for not doing enough to clear his name.
Jamael “Tito” Brown recently sent a letter to John McNally asking him for proof he is no longer being investigated in connection with the Oak Hill Renaissance corruption case.
McNally and others were indicted three years ago only to have the case dismissed in court after prosecutors said the FBI refused to release surveillance evidence in the case. Since then, there has been speculation the investigation has not ended. Brown is calling on McNally to put the suspicions to rest.
“For him not to be able to go and say ‘Hey, I need something for the voters in my community to say that I’m not part of a federal investigation.’ I think it’s the incumbent, that’s him, he needs to do that,” said Brown. “Get something in writing, get something from the federal government because the voters deserve to know that he is no longer part of an investigation.”
Although Brown gave McNally until this past Monday to respond to his letter, Brown said he hasn’t received a reply.
McNally said he has stated publicly that he is unaware of any further investigations and refused to pursue rumors.
