Retiring firefighter, Eagle Scout honored by Richmond Hts City Council

Snow removal, municipal finance, and political wrangling are not always the order of the day at Richmond Heights City Council meetings. On January 28, in the midst of a contentious meeting over council’s rejection of several highly qualified nominees to fill the vacant Ward 2 council seat, the entire council chamber turned into a love fest to
Lieutenant Robert "Bob" Armstrong
honor retiring firefighter, Lieutenant Robert “Bob” Armstrong. Colleagues and council members alike took to the podium to celebrate Armstrong’s distinguished 27-year career as a member of the Richmond Heights Fire Department, and the pioneering role he played in developing and modernizing emergency medical services in the city.

Also honored for exemplary achievement was Jashawn Molten, who recently
Eagle Scout Jashawn Molten and Mayor Headen
earned Eagle Scout status. Jashawn is the son of former school board member Tamitra Peavy.
