I had the opportunity to speak with the Mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman, a few nights ago. He was the featured speaker at the monthly meeting of the Real Estate Insiders Club. In an era of much pessimism about the Las Vegas real estate market, Mayor Goodman is the voice of unbridled optimism. It was a refreshing change.
The meeting was held on the 24th floor of the Newport Lofts high-rise condominium in downtown Las Vegas. With breathtaking views of the Las Vegas strip as a backdrop, Mayor Goodman gushed about what the future holds for the City of Las Vegas. While one would expect any incumbent politician to exude optimism, Mayor Goodman could back it up with facts and accomplishments.
