Riechert Wins Macon-Bibb


Mayor Robert A. B. Reichert has claimed victory over former-mayor C. Jack Ellis for the new consolidated Macon-Bibb government. As of Tuesday night, all 40 precincts reported; Reichert won 39 precincts with a total 25,899 votes cast for Reichert and 15,182 for Ellis.

“To those people who did not vote for me I want to say come join us,” Reichert said, “When we first ran for mayor of Macon back in 2007, the inaugural address said move on, move in, move up, and now with this consolidation with Bibb County, I think we’re ready to take our position again as the premier city and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
