I’m Mayor Anthony Howard and let me be the first to welcome you to Blakely if you’re a visitor and thank you if you’re a citizen. I was born and raised here and have watched this unique farming community evolve into what it is today. Describing Blakely in a few words would be a very daunting task but I’ll give it a try. It’s busy yet quiet, except during Friday Night Football! It’s unassuming yet it produces enough agriculture to help feed a nation. It’s quaintly picturesque yet we’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. I could go on but it still wouldn’t do our community justice. I couldn’t be more proud of our citizens and to serve as your mayor. If we can be of assistance in any way, please let us know. We’re here to serve you.
Enjoy your visit!
