Lexington Mayor Jim Gray and challenger Anthany Beatty visited Maxwell Elementary Friday morning to answer questions from third-graders. The candidates appeared at the school at different times. Each candidate spoke to four classes, answering students' prepared questions. Beatty was Lexington police chief for eight years before he went to work for the University of Kentucky. Gray is seeking a second term. The former CEO of Gray Construction previously was vice mayor before besting then-Mayor Jim Newberry in 2010.
