RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - Voters in a Cleveland suburb have decided to kick out their mayor.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (http://bit.ly/1sXkoNr ) reports that voters in Richmond Heights have decided to eject Mayor Miesha Headen from office.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County elections results show 57 percent of the 2,736 people who voted Tuesday wanted Headen out.

Headen’s 10-month term has been marked by fights with city council and the firings of at least six city employees. Her supporters say she’s trying to reform the city after years of cronyism and government waste.

A councilwoman before she was elected mayor, Headen beat longtime incumbent Daniel Ursu by 41 votes in the four-way mayoral race in November. The east Cleveland suburb is home to about 11,000 people.
