Anthony Harris, who some may remember as one of the protestors at the Cherry Blossom Festival and Mayor Robert Reichert's State of the City speech, now says he plans to run for mayor of the new Macon-Bibb government.

Harris says, if elected, his first order of business would be weeding out members of the consolidated law enforcement.

He says his next move would be cutting salaries for some Macon-Bibb employees, including himself. Harris says he would donate two-thirds of his salary back to the city.

Some of his other plans would include shortening the Cherry Blossom Festival and adding a week-long music festival. He says he also wants to dedicate a few blocks of downtown Macon for an Indian reserve.

Harris admits he hasn't voted since 1992, because he became an anarchist. He says he is now a registered voter.

He will be up against current Macon Mayor Reichert, former Mayor C. Jack Ellis, Bibb Chairman Sam Hart, former county chair Charlie Bishop, County Commissioner Joe Allen, and businessman David Cousino.
