MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Macon Mayor Robert Reichert says he's going to use every second he can to build a better community, between now and the upcoming runoff election against former Macon mayor C. Jack Ellis.
Reichert held a news conference earlier today and had the support off major political players standing behind him; Bibb Commissioner Joe Allen, as well as state representative Nikki Randall to name a few.
Reichert wants the vision of the city of Macon to spread to the new Macon - Bibb consolidated government.
"We commit today to shared opportunity and to a rising economic tide that will float all boats equally. Join us...join us as we work to build a stronger Macon - Bibb County that is the hub city of the middle Georgia region," Reichert said.
The runoff elections for the new Macon - Bibb consolidated government are on October 15.
