MayorTV Sits Down with Lexington, KY Mayor Jim Newberry Before the Kentucky Primary: “The presidential candidates should shoot straight. Cities are the key component.”Lexington is famous for its horses and its Bluegrass pastureland.

Nope. “The presidential candidates absolutely must have an urban agenda… Cities are confronted with a multitude of challenges, but they are the economic engines of our country.”
