North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee’s concise 25-minute State of the City speech was serious. Of course, he has reason to be serious. The city’s financial shape is dismal. A projected deficit of $152.6 million over seven years must be taken seriously.
The First Ladies First conversation will be remembered mostly for the hysterical stories the five women told, which showcased their humor, warmth and intelligence. But the Nevada Women’s Legacy event also needs to be remembered for former first lady Dawn Gibbons’ restraint and good taste.
