North Las Vegas Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown Launches Bid for Mayor
(North Las Vegas, NV) North Las Vegas Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown announced her candidacy for Mayor of North Las Vegas today. Goynes, a retired educator, has been a member of the North Las Vegas City Council since 2011 and has served two stints as Mayor Pro Tempore. Goynes-Brown would be the first African American elected to the position of Mayor.
“My family’s roots run deep in this city, and no one is more devoted to the people of North Las Vegas than me,” Goynes-Brown said. “All politics is local. I have a proven track record and real plan to improve our city’s quality of life and restore our economy.”
A retired Assistant Principal, Goynes-Brown dedicated 35 years to improving education and uplifting kids in Southern Nevada. Named “Woman of the Year” in 2014 by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority for her dedication to the community, Pamela was also recognized at the Urban Chamber of Commerce “Women in Politics” gala and in honor of “Women’s Equality Day” by the Women’s Democratic Club.
“My father served North Las Vegas for decades, that’s where I learned the value of hard work,” Goynes-Brown said. “The people of North Las Vegas understand hard work, too, and they deserve a mayor who will fight for them, not politics as usual.”
Goynes-Brown earned a Master’s in Elementary Education from NOVA Southeastern University after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education from Prairie View A & M University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Pamela is married to Romero and has two children, Bobby R. Owens, III and Michael A. Owens. Her hobbies include spending time with family, reading, fishing, playing bingo and participating in various sports.
