35 Faces of Soul

The faces of tourism in Macon, Ga.

Mayor Robert Reichert

Mayor Robert Reichert grew up in Macon-Bibb and was elected in 2016 for his second term as Mayor of the consolidated Macon-Bibb County government. Throughout his terms as Mayor, he has been focused on growing Macon-Bibb to become the transportation, logistics, and cultural hub of the Middle Georgia region. 

"One of the principal things that gives Macon its rich soul is its musical heritage. Whether you want to talk about Otis Redding, James Brown, Ray Charles, Little Richard Penniman, or others that either grew up in, lived in, or visited Macon on a regular basis," says Mayor Reichert.
