Mack says his main focus is making the city a better place to live.

“I ran a campaign saying that I was all access boots on the ground kind of guy and that’s why I came to walk this neighborhood and other neighborhoods like this,” says Mack. “I just want the citizens to know that I’m going to keep my word and do whatever I can within my power to help them.”

Mack was elected to Warner Robins City Council Post 1. He is finishing out the term of previous Councilman Daren Lee. Lee resigned back in October.
