Georgia Conference of Black Mayors holds spring conference

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia Conference of Black Mayors held its annual spring conference Friday to discuss expansion of the Savannah Port in Hinesville.

This year's conference theme is "Expanding Georgia's Ports: The New Emerging Economy."

The group examined various aspects of the regional effects of the planned expansion of the Port of Savannah, and what rural communities in the region can do to take advantage of this large infrastructure improvement project.

"It gives us an opportunity to come, to see where we have a commonality as far as our cities are concerned and also to exchange ideas in order for us to help each other," said Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson.

The mayors will take a tour of the city of Hinesville and Fort Stewart on Saturday.
