Goodman’s State of the City speech to be virtual again

Updated January 6, 2022 - 3:17 am

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman will deliver the state of the city address on Thursday, once again to be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The presentation is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m., and a live feed will be carried on the city’s social media channels and television station, KCLV Channel 2.

Last year, Goodman gave her 10th State of the City address in a nearly hourlong prerecorded taping, saying Las Vegas was “ready to welcome the world back” following a 2020 marred by the emergence of the COVID-19 virus. In 2021, vaccine rollouts have provided hopes of turning a corner even as the omicron variant has surged this winter.

Typically the annual speech, which generally offers a vision for the new year and reflects on the recent past, has occurred live inside City Hall.

The city said that individuals who follow along with the virtual presentation can use the hashtag #stateofvegas to be “a part of the mayor’s conversation.”

Visit the city’s Facebook page, Twitter account or KCLV Channel 2 to watch this year’s address.
