Macon Mayor Jack Ellis today said he is forming a committee to explore whether to seek the 8th congressional district seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall.
Ellis made his remarks this morning after signing a proclamation about breast cancer awareness. He said he will embark on a listening tour through the district on weekends and then more heavily once he leaves office in December. The district stretches from south Georgia’s Colquitt County through Middle Georgia to the southern edge of metro Atlanta.
I guess hearing about William Jefferson inspired him. Of course, if Marshall doesn’t vote to override SCHIP, maybe the Democrats will flirt with him. I doubt it, but we can hope. Hahahaha.
Thanks Mayor Ellis for today’s laugh.
