2018 State of Vegas


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

Tonight, 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: #StateofVegas.

This is Goodman’s seventh State of Vegas address. Once it begins, State of Vegas is a fast-paced recap of the previous year – warts and all and district by district. Those betting wager how long it will go with an over/under at 5 hours. For those viewing at home, grab your favorite beverage of choice and enjoy.
