I would like to thank Mayor Reichert for giving a State of the Community Address today that highlighted so many of the wonderful things that our beloved community has to offer. North Macon has more new businesses than it can handle. We have seen significant progress in the revitalization of downtown. A thriving downtown is a wonderful thing and a great foundation for future growth, but we have more work to do. What does it serve our community to have downtown as an island of prosperity while the closing of businesses and the lack of investment is creating oceans of despair throughout other parts of our community?

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.
That September, the Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent.
Known today as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The event inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celebrations, establish history clubs and host performances and lectures.
We are excited about the launch of our keyword ad campaign in October 2019.

One of our candidate's favorite places is Cape Canaveral. He's a huge fan of aerospace projects and technology. November's keyword was "Gratitude". December was "Family"
and the January 2020 keyword is "Prosperity".
