Moffett "Strongly Considering" Race for Macon City Council President

Keith Moffett, a Democrat recently named as one of Georgia Trend's 40 Under 40 and who ran for the school board in 2004, says that he is "strongly considering" entering the race for Macon City Council President.

The recent proposal to reduce the size of Macon City Council includes the provision that only one citywide seat will be elected and that person will become Council President. Previously, council elected the President. With this choice now in the voters' hands, there is likely to be considerable interest in this post, and with the precedent sent by the recent race for Superior Court Judge, the cost of this race will be substantial. Potential candidates are beginning to put out feelers. Other than Moffett, what names are you hearing?

I think there are several good options with people currently sitting on council that would make a good choice - Mike Cranford, Nancy White, Wilette Hill-Chambliss. It seems that you need to have some experience with the issues to be effective. On a very strange note, I hear Erick Erickson is considering a run.

Well, I have heard people wishing that Cranford and White would run, but Erick??? I have not heard that.
