My research uncovered that while on City Council, Wayne Gray voted to provide taxpayer monies to this private event, while as reports show he personally benefited financially from payments received.

In 2017, just before he was to file for re-election, it was reported that Wayne Gray was caus! scandal when he voted to spend taxpayer dollars to help fund a private group while having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a key staff member.
