The North Salem Republican Town Committee celebrates Black History Month. Today we honor Kentucky State Representative candidate Jim Coleman (R). 

Jim has deep roots in Westchester County, as well as his native Kentucky where he is running for Kentucky State Representative.  Jim graduated in Economics at Howard University and worked for decades leading Fortune 500 companies to success including; Oscar Mayer & Co., Pepsi Cola Company, Philip Morris USA, American Express, Altria Corporation, the New York State Senate, Westchester County New York Government and Prince George’s County Maryland Economic Development Corporation.

He owns and operates Coleman Crest Farm, a historic farm in Lexington  Kentucky that his great-grandfather tilled as a slave, whose son James Coleman purchased in 1888. Coleman Crest Farm put over 300 Coleman descendants through college, and is an example of the generational wealth that Mr. Coleman promotes. The farm is committed to becoming the first African American owned, USDA Organic Certified Produce Farm in the State of Kentucky in 2022. 

Mr. Coleman is also the author of Cut the Crap, and Close the Gap, a guide for businesses. Jim believes in seizing the moment in life, and making the most of your 27,000 days. Jim is currently featured in Kubota Tractor’s video production of the same “seize the moment” theme at
