Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman announced Tuesday that she has stage 2 breast cancer. Goodman went on to say she is still as full of energy as a pack of wolves and the cancer is treatable.
Goodman made that announcement about her diagnosis before filing to run for what would be her third and final term in the office. Goodman was first elected to office in 2011 after her husband Oscar Goodman termed out.
Today is the first day of filing for the 2019 municipal elections. So far, nobody has announced that they plan to run against Goodman for mayor.
