Lexington Mayor Reacts To Galbraith's Death

By Josh James


Lexington, KY – Lexington Mayor Jim Gray is reacting to the sudden death of perennial candidate Gatewood Galbraith. This morning Gray said Galbraith's campaigns were always genuine and born of conviction.

"That represented the kind of democratic process, the kind of campaigning that is often something we don't see anymore. He brought color, he brought conviction. And an unfiltered, unvarnished way of looking at the democratic process," Gray said.

The mayor said, although he didn't always see eye to eye with him, he respected Galbraith's principled stands on issues.
