State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) celebrated the great achievements of two exemplary citizens of the Village of Walton Hills at their Community Day celebration on Sunday, August 9th.


Bob Romanowski and the late David Knapp were both honored as Citizens of the Year for their activism in the community. Both men have displayed an undeniable devotion and selfless initiative to their fellow citizens of Walton Hills.


Bob is incredibly active in his community. He served as president of the Walton Hills Lake Club and the Walton Hills Citizen’s League. In addition, he coordinated candidates' night and the Walton Hills Car Show.  Bob accepted the award surround by his wife, Barbara Romanowski, and many of their friends and family.  


David Knapp, a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, served in various posts, such as the executive director of the United Labor Agency of Cleveland, the regional chairman of the Ohio School-to-Work Campaign, president of the Walton Hills Citizens’ League, and Council President Pro Tem of the Village of Walton Hills.  Representative Anielski presented the commendation to David’s wife, Christine Knapp, and his family.


“It was an honor to present commendations to recognize two constituents and their families who went above and beyond for their community,” Rep. Anielski said.  “I am pleased to have personally witnessed their dedication and commitments to their community by working with and serving as their former mayor.  It is now an honor to being serving as their state representative.”
