Macon Mayor Robert Reichert collected some key endorsements Thursday in his bid to head the consolidated Macon-Bibb government.

During a press conference in Rosa Parks Square in Macon County commissioner Joe Allen threw his support behind Reichert. State Representative Nikki Randall also endorsed Reichert saying "As mayor crime is down, our communities are working together, morale is up among employees. What else do we want in a mayor?"

In 2011, Randall drew criticism from some constituents for her support of Reichert in his first runoff against former mayor C. Jack Ellis.

The two men face each other in a rematch on October 15th.
