Jim will be the first openly LGBTQ Congressman from Kentucky
Jim Gray’s life has been about creating opportunities for people. Through his family business, Gray Construction, he worked across Kentucky and the US helping companies realize their own dreams to create tens of thousands of good jobs. In 2010, Jim was elected as the first openly gay Mayor of Lexington where he has put his business experience to work in City Hall. Under Jim’s leadership, Lexington is on the right track. He has helped create thousands of jobs and bring unemployment to a historic low. Lexington is an economic engine for the state, but more importantly, Lexington workers are earning 13.5% more on average. Jim used his decades of business experience to get Lexington’s finances in order – balancing budgets after inheriting a deficit and creating surpluses year after year. He implemented reforms to save taxpayers millions of dollars annually. He led initiatives that will attract and keep businesses and employees who expect high quality of life. Lexington is poised to become the largest city in America with Gigabit Internet across the entire city. Jim is ready to take this experience to deliver results for Kentuckians in Congress. We need more leaders in Congress who are willing to bring people together to solve problems and protect the American Dream for all hardworking Kentuckians. That’s what Jim Gray has done as Mayor, and that’s what he’ll do in Congress.
