If you click on the image, it should come up big enough to read.

Now, you can compare those maps to this one, which shows the area Mayor Robert Reichert wants to annex into the city in light green:
As we go forward, perhaps the paper can produce a true overlay to make it a little easier to compare. For that matter, we could do any number of statistical composites, so feel free to suggest anything you think would be helpful.
Just from my first glances here, it doesn't look like the annexation would overtly target the county's wealth, which is interesting since Reichert has said from the beginning that this is about efficiency of providing services, not a $$ grab.
Could he have been telling the truth? We don't take kindly to that in Macon politics.
