Lexington Mayor Jim Gray on Wednesday invited Lexington residents to "Vote Lexington" on the Huffington Post. Vote for Lexington's entry in the Bloomberg Mayors Challenge, a nationwide competition for the best ideas to improve cities.
"Lexington's entry into the contest, CitizenLex.org, created by our citizens for all citizens, is up against ideas from 19 other cities nationwide," Gray said. Million-dollar prizes are at stake in the competition, sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies.
Beginning Wednesday and continuing through March 6, citizens have the opportunity to Vote Lexington at www.huffingtonpost.com/mayors-challenge.
The Huffington Post is sponsoring the vote and features an essay by Gray about CitizenLex.
More information about CitizenLex is also available on the city's website, www.lexingtonky.gov.
