Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman made an early stop to a Starbucks Tuesday to discuss things with Las Vegas voters.  People filtered in and out of the popular coffee shop on North Rancho and had a chance to sit down one-on-one with Mayor Goodman.

Topics included housing, transportation, education and even taxi cabs. Some cabbies are concerned that they are being told to promote the negative lifestyle of Las Vegas rather than the positive. The mayor said that the Taxi Cab Authority is a very important agency and should focus on the positive aspects of the city.

Education also came up and the mayor has some specific thoughts on what Nevada needs to do to improve. First, Mayor Goodman believes that kids should be reading by kindergarten rather than 3rd grade, which is the Nevada standard. Also, with Nevada ranking near the bottom in many educational topics she believes that will need to improve in order for businesses to move to the Silver State

Today’s Coffee with the Mayor was part of a series of visits that Mayor Goodman makes to areas across Las Vegas to meet with constituents.

    I drive a taxi cab in las vegas, and the TA (as it is know here) may be important, but it is surely corrupt. It mainly concerns itself with the interest of the cab companies, and disregards the drivers completely.

    Long hauling is a big issue here.
