Ms. Goodman, the wife of former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, was elected to the position in June 2011 after her husband was termed out by a recently created law that prohibits elected officials from serving more than three four-year terms or six two-year terms. This is Mayor Goodman’s second term reelection bid.
She has been one of the most productive and community-oriented mayors in Las Vegas and we will find out during her appearance on RadioTribune.com if she will be running for a second term.
“It is with great pleasure and a little bit of vanity that I can announce that Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman has graciously accepted my invitation to appear on my Face The Tribune radio show and that makes me very happy,” said Rolando Larraz, Founder and Publisher of Las Vegas Tribune newspaper, owner of the radiotribune.com radio station and producer of his own show, Face The Tribune since 2008.
Mayor Carolyn Goodman will share the microphones of Face The Tribune with me on Monday, February 23, and hopefully she will be able to stay the whole hour and maybe even get some phone calls on the air.
Mayor Goodman also will be available to speak to her Las Vegas constituents and share some cheese and crackers while listening to residents that chose to listen to the radio show from the conference room of the newspaper and later greet the mayor and talk with her after the show.
Face The Tribune is a mainly political, and a little controversial, Internet radio show produced by the weekly Las Vegas Tribune and hosted by the newspaper’s Founder and Publisher, Rolando Larraz.
Among the well-known figures that have appeared on Face The Tribune are 39-year veteran police detective Gordon Martines while he was a candidate for Clark County Sheriff, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson, County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak, Commissioner Larry Weekly, and Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani.
Martines is now a columnist with the Las Vegas Tribune and also hosts his own show on radiotribune.com Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 to noon.
Many judges like Ann Zimmerman, Debby Lippis, Bill Jansen, Bill Kephart, Cedric Kerns and many political candidates have come through the small but brave radio station’s door, speaking out through a venue that prides itself on being a sister in spirit to the publication — the Las Vegas Tribune — which is a voice for those who don’t have a voice.
