Democratic nominee Robert Reichert ran away with the Macon Mayor’s race, receiving 96% of the votes in a landslide victory never before seen in Macon.  With 11,446 votes to Republican opponent David Cousino’s 459, Reichert officially became Macon, Georgia’s newest mayor-elect on November 6, 2007.

Introducing himself as “Robert Reichert, Macon’s mayor-elect,” Reichert thanked the crowd of supporters and spoke briefly about a community that has come together for the good of the entire city.  “We’ve built a foundation for this community because the message has been ‘together we can,” he said, amidst cheers from a very diverse crowd that included blacks and whites, young and old, rich and poor.
