We have a very diverse community in Macon, Bibb and Peach Counties. Bigotry and hate have no place here. We appreciate people of all backgrounds, religious beliefs and those who want to build strong communities that support peaceful and prosperous lifestyles for everyone.

My office will continue to investigate this matter with the US Attorney’s office to hold Jon Minadeo accountable to the fullest extent of the law for the wrongdoing that he brought to our city.
