Vandegrift to seek reelection
Grayson Vandegrift has announced his intention to run for reelection as mayor of Midway in 2018. First elected in 2014, Vandegrift has served as mayor since Jan. 1, 2015. "Serving you as the mayor of Midway has been the honor of a lifetime, and I want to continue to build upon the significant progress we've made over the last three years. Working together as a community we've brought new industry to Midway Station, creating what will eventually be over 350 well-paying jobs. We've increased the city's revenue, lowered property taxes each of the last two years, and absorbed a rate hike by Kentucky American Water so as not to pass it on to the consumer. We've encouraged volunteerism, which among other things, has led to the vast improvements of Walter Bradley Park. "We've paved roads and launched a successful public/private sidewalk program. We've made upgrades to the Midway Volunteer Fire Department, begun water and sewer upgrades, and improved city properties and city services. We also amended our civil rights code to include protections in housing, public accommodations, and employment for the LGBT community. "I would be honored to serve another term as your mayor, and I ask for your vote on Nov., 6, 2018."
