Seven people are vying to serve as Lexington’s next mayor. Tuesday’s filing deadline brought a number of last minute filers to the Fayette County Clerk’s office.
Among them are former Lexington Mayor Teresa Issac and former Lexington Police Chief Ronnie Bastin. Also in the crowded field are current Urban County Council Kevin Stinnett and former Lexington Council Member Linda Gorton.
The other candidates filing in the mayoral contest are real estate broker Ike Lawrence, William Weyman and Skip Horine. Interest in the mayor’s position increased when current Mayor Jim Gray announced he is among those seeking a congressional seat.
