Carolyn Goodman says that she just “woke up and decided to run the morning of filing”. NOT TRUE. She has a full campaign staff, signs and T-shirts ready to go. WHY is that important? Do you want a Mayor whose very first statement isn’t true on the day they file?
She told “You People” at The NAACP that she “understands what you go through, I live behind UMC.” She lives “behind UMC” like Las Vegas is next to Los Angeles. Why tell people in the most depressed part of Las Vegas that you “are one of them” when you live in one of the most exclusive parts of town?
She says that she has debated “18 times”. No one can figure out where that math comes from. The total is closer to six. Carolyn goes by the old adage that if you repeat it enough, it becomes truth. Google what other historical figures lived by that mantra. In addition, she has avoided debates and cancelled debates, even on the little kids at The 100 Academy of Excellence. She has set rules where she will not speak at the same time as her opponent. Why? Possibly she’s afraid that she’ll be shown for the inexperienced candidate that she is.
She has NO experience at all:
Carolyn can say all day and night that she has run a non-profit for 30 years and that still does not translate into EXPERIENCE. The non-profit world is vastly different from a city with hundreds of millions of dollars in obligations and all sorts of groups that do not live in fear of their jobs if they challenge her. Have you seen the tuition schedule? How is the school non-profit when they are currently charged $22k a year for high school students and REQUIRE alumni to donate to their program every year (at least once a year) after graduation? The tuition rates are higher than UNLV or some out of state college tuitions. It may be non-profit but it sure is profitable. Nonetheless, this doesn’t equal the experience needed to run a major U.S. city in the throes of a recession.
If sitting on the board of a non-profit equals big city government experience, we’re in trouble.
Ok, let’s do the “3am Emergency call” scenario. It’s 3am and the Mayors phone rings to tell her that there is a terrorist hostage situation at a Downtown Casino. Do you want someone who runs a non-profit to answer? What are they going to do, call a donor, stat?
WHO is SHE? Carolyn began by saying that she was “her own candidate”. When people began to ask who that candidate is, she backtracked and began saying she and her husband were a “two for one deal”. Besides insulting the voters who want term limits by being a shill for yet another term of her husband, Carolyn has gone back on her statement that she is “her own candidate.” WHO are you?
CAROLYN GOODMAN HAS NEVER BEEN A FRIEND OF THE LGBT COMMUNITY: Ask yourself this; where was Carolyn at this years AIDS Walk? PRIDE? HRC Gala? NCOD? Any event at The Center whatsoever? When asked if she supported Gay Marriage she asked, “why can’t Gays just sign a contract and split everything 50/50 when one of you dies?” She said NO to Qvegas for an interview. No Friend to us.
Politically active LGBT single and looking to mingle! Love to to laugh and think. Big on bios especially Political and trashy Hollywood stuff. Love old movies and classic cocktails. I'm very laid back until I want something,at that point anyone in my way gets mowed down. I will be a city councilman in Las Vegas within the next five years. Very conservative total liberal. Hate idiots on the left and right. PC makes me gag (and not in a fun late 70's way). I laugh all the time! I used to be on American Bandstand and had a spotlight dance to some awful QuarterFlash ditty with my partner Nanette Wallinsky, I believe we were the first interracial dance couple on AB, "we're goin' rockin...."!
