Las Vegas mayor to deliver virtual State of City address

In a sign of the times, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman will deliver the annual State of the City address through television and social media on Thursday, foregoing the typical in-person presentation due to the pandemic.

The virtual delivery will be broadcast on KLCV Channel 2 as well as the city’s Facebook and Twitter pages beginning at 5 p.m., according to the city.

The yearly address offers Goodman an opportunity to provide her vision for the upcoming year and beyond. The city is encouraging people to use the hashtag #stateofvegas on social media to engage with the mayor’s remarks.

Gov. Steve Sisolak announced he would also virtually give the biennial State of the State address, scheduled for Jan. 19.
