MACON, Ga. — Have you ever heard candidates out campaigning and thought, “I wish they’d talk about this issue in my neighborhood," or “Why won’t anyone answer this question I have?"

Now is your chance to get the candidates to talk about what is important to YOU.

This February, we’re launching the 13WMAZ Listening Lab. We’re traveling to nine different locations around Macon to find out what issues are important to you and your neighbors.

All you have to do is show up and tell us what’s on your mind.

When we’re finished, we’ll take the information you’ve given us and use it as we cover the candidates and campaigns leading up to the May 19 Macon-Bibb elections.

This year, the entire nine-member county commission is up for election, along with the mayor’s seat, which is wide open since incumbent Mayor Robert Reichert is term-limited.

There are also a number of other county positions up for election too.

Here’s where you can join us for one of our Listening Lab sessions to make sure your voice is heard in this election:

Tuesday February 18

8-10 a.m. at Amerson River Park, 2551 Pierce Dr N,

11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Middle Georgia State University polling place, 100 University Parkway.

4:30-7 in the Lofts at Zebulon clubhouse, 5801 Zebulon Rd

Can't make it? You can still help us by taking this survey about what issues are important to you!
