Councilwoman Denise Gray was elected to represent the residents of the 6th District in November of 2022.
Denise is a proud graduate of Bryan Station High School. She went to the University of Louisville, where she received a B.A. in Communications and was a founding member of Louisville’s National Championship All-Girl Cheerleading Squad. She later graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
Upon returning to Lexington, she sought to further her impact on our community and shifted her career to education. She started working with Fayette County Public Schools, helping Booker T. Washington Intermediate Academy students, Harrison Elementary, Crawford Middle, and Bryan Station High Schools.
As a testament to Denise’s dedication to public service, and her commitment to her community, she has held several digital town hall nonpartisan conversations to address the “Hard Issues.” Her “Addressing the Elephant in the Room: Race” town hall, which addressed policing, and other issues, was covered by the media around the Commonwealth. “Kentucky Conversations with Denise Gray” focused on the lives of our fellow Kentuckians.
Denise has served on numerous boards, but her most valued position has been as a board member of the Autism Society Bluegrass.

About Council District 6
The sixth district is located on the ancestral homelands of the Adena, Cherokee, Hopewell, Osage, Shawnee, and Yuchi peoples. It stretches along Lexington's east side with Paris Pike, Winchester, Liberty, and Bryan Station roads as major corridors.
Cultural and socioeconomic diversity distinguishes this vibrant district. Residents speak a variety of languages, including Chinese, English, French, Spanish, Swahili, and Vietnamese, among others. Additionally, it is a wonderful place to learn, play, and work! The district houses 13 Fayette County Public Schools with 15 programs within them, six city parks, and many small and large businesses.
Some highlights of the sixth district include the Brighton Rail Trail, Hamburg Pavilion, a regional retail center that provides shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities for thousands from across Lexington and neighboring counties, and the Hamburg Place Horse Cemetery, which houses the remains of some of racing’s most famous thoroughbreds and several Kentucky Derby winners.
