NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Yesterday, the City of North Las Vegas commemorated the official swearing in of the City’s new Mayor, Pamela Goynes-Brown and two council members, Councilman Isaac E. Barron, Ward 1 and Councilman Scott Black, Ward 3. All took the oath of office during the ceremony which was followed by the regular City Council meeting
Mayor Goynes-Brown is the first black Mayor in Nevada history. Goynes-Brown, a longtime educator turned public servant, previously served as Councilwoman of North Las Vegas’ Ward 2 and was the first female African American Councilwoman in her previous role. She also was the first female African American Mayor Pro-Tempore, having served in that role twice. Goynes-Brown’s recent election as Mayor continues her streak of breaking barriers.
“It is an incredible honor to serve the constituents of the City of North Las Vegas, one of the most diverse cities in America,” Goynes-Brown continued. “To set the stage for young boys and girls in North Las Vegas, to see themselves represented from the Mayor’s seat to our Executive offices to the Team Members who serve our community each day, I believe the City of North Las Vegas embodies the beautifully diverse future of this country and I am honored to serve as Mayor.”
Goynes-Brown leads the charge for the City of North Las Vegas, the third largest municipality in Nevada and one of the largest minority-majority cities in America. Councilman Isaac E. Barron and Councilman Scott Black were both re-elected in the primary election to represent Ward 1 and Ward 3, respectively.
