Five Macon-Bibb winners look to future | Elections | Macon.com

While five races for seats in the new Macon-Bibb County consolidated government remain undecided, five city-county commission races are settled.

Now those who know they have won are preparing to take office in three and a half months by building relationships with each other, learning about their new jobs and deciding whether to get involved in the remaining contests that will be resolved in an Oct. 15 runoff.

Chief among those unsettled races is countywide mayor. The voting Sept. 17 set up a rematch between current Macon Mayor Robert Reichert and former Mayor C. Jack Ellis.

“I’m certainly going to do everything I can to make sure the mayor is elected,” said current Bibb County Commissioner Gary Bechtel, winner of the new District 1 seat, referring to Reichert. “I haven’t been asked or volunteered to engage in any of the other races.”
