deployed to New York City during 911 and to New Orleans
after Hurricane Katrina.
Miley has a
positive vision for East Macon if elected. "I grew
up in East Macon and went to school here," he
said. "I want to make sure that this area is
served to its fullest through economic growth.
Though there are homes and businesses that have been
here for many years, there is still a negative stigma
attached to East Macon. We need to provide a movie
theater, upscale restaurants, and other services so that
residents won't have to travel across town for these
things. I believe that I can serve East Macon to
its fullest in this respect."
