On April 22, 2020 , Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman insisted that the city’s businesses reopen.

“I am not a private owner. That’s the competition in this country. The free enterprise and to be able to make sure that what you offer the public meets the needs of the public,” Goodman, said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

 

“Right now, we’re in a crisis health-wise, and so for a restaurant to be open or a small boutique to be open, they better figure it out. That’s their job. That’s not the mayor’s job,” she added.

 

Technically, Goodman does not have the authority to order Las Vegas’ casinos to reopen and her comments run against the reopening guidelines the state’s Gaming Control Board issued, which will ultimately decide when business opens up again.

 

On April 21, Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak said that casino owners are working on a plan to protect the health of customers when the doors finally open again.

 

The state intends to comply with the federal government’s guidelines on reopening the economy from shelter-in-place orders. Sisolak said that the state is currently in “phase zero” and he did not provide a date on when he expects stores to reopen.

Lots of uncertainty is in the air now that millions are out of work. Several states are rolling out gradual re-openings, but politicians across the spectrum are still hesitant to take re-opening measures.

“I want everything back. We never closed down the United States. We’ve never closed down Nevada. We’ve never closed down Las Vegas because that’s our job. Entertainment capital of the world where everything is clean,” Goodman stated.

Goodman has been one of the few independent voices calling for common sense re-opening measures.

Hopefully, her dissenting opinion will make policymakers in Nevada reconsider their misguided shutdown policies.
