Among the things that Las Vegas does right is the annual of State of Las Vegas presentation made by Mayor Carolyn Goodman.

This is her sixth State of Vegas address. I have not attended in person, but thanks to livestreaming video, anyone around the world can access the mayorial assessment of the preceding year in one of the world’s most storied cities. Hashtag:.
