"It's important to respect tradition and to challenge it as well."


Mayor Jim Gray's tenure for the city of Lexington was about getting things done.

From dealing with tough constraints to major reformations to the removal of Confederate statues in the public space, Mayor Gray viewed his work and impact as an entrepreneur.
