Reichert Announces Run For Mayor



By Amanda Smith


We have another candidate for Macon’s upcoming open mayoral seat.  Robert Reichert has thrown his hat into the race, as well. 


Robert was born in Macon and graduated from Stratford Academy in 1966.  He attended the University of Georgia for 2 years, and afterward enlisted in the United States Army.  While in the Army, Robert served as a helicopter pilot in Viet Nam and achieved the rank of Chief Warrant Officer.  After completing his service, he returned to his native Macon.


After re-entering the University of Georgia, Robert received a Bachelors Degree in Agriculture, then went on to Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctorate in 1981.  While at Mercer, Robert interned with Senator Sam Nunn in his legislative section.  After college, he joined the law firm of Anderson, Walker & Reichert and became a partner in 1985.  He has been practicing civil litigation for the past 20 years.


Married to the lovely Dele, Robert and his wife have two children and are members of Vineville United Methodist Church.


Robert was elected to serve on the Macon City Council in 1987 and the Georgia House of Representatives in 1992, where he represented northwest Macon and Bibb County through the 2002 legislative session.


Robert’s mayoral platform includes the following:


Reconciliation – Work together for the common good

Economy – Live within our means, but grow the means

Industry – Attract jobs and retailers to the city

Crime – Make EVERY neighborhood safe

Honesty – The hallmark of the administration

Environment – Parks and greenspace in the city

Revitalization – Reinvesting in city property

Transportation – both inner-city and intra-city


Reichert joins an ever-growing list of candidates for The Honorable C Jack Ellis’ seat that include Republican Arlen Gibson; Macon City Council President Anita Ponder; Educator and former Macon City Councilmember Thelma Dillard; and Lance Randall, son of Bibb County Magistrate Judge William Randall and grandson of civil rights leader and first black Bibb County Commissioner William “Daddy Bill” Randall.
