I-Team: Tony Spilotro once ruled the Las Vegas streets

There was one deal Oscar struck, however, that the county could not block or compete with. After posing for pictures, Carolyn made a beeline to a small group standing at the back of the seating area.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Oscar, for all his unorthodox behavior and his shady past, was a genuine urban dreamer. Reporters looked disappointed. Within four years, it had moved to a acre campus in the thriving western development of Summerlin. Despite a somewhat shaky grasp of municipal issues, she won handily. Development in Clark County took off. Jones, a telegenic Stanford business school graduate, also campaigned successfully to build the new Clark County administration building and the new U. She is promoting school system innovations as a first step. The casino owners wanted visitors to stay on the Strip and gamble, not go to a basketball arena or to a ballpark. Behind them, wearing purple T-shirts and Elvis wigs, came a dozen government employees. The Zappos employees are similarly placed closer to the bottom of the economic ladder. At a time when Las Vegas was still deep in recession, the Zappos deal was the ultimate gift Oscar bequeathed to his successor, Carolyn. Oscar Goodman, a flamboyant mob attorney -- he played himself in the Martin Scorsese movie Casino -- stunned political observers by winning the mayoralty in his first political campaign. In many ways, they are coming for what the city has always offered: a unique place in the post-industrial blue-collar economy. But his larger point is that Las Vegas has not become the tech center thet Hsieh and the Goodmans hoped it would be. Economists Ed Glaeser and Enrico Moretti extended this insight to cities. Whether that represents failure is a complicated question. He did not. They moved to Nevada when Oscar got a job with the Clark County district attorney. When term limits forced him to step down in , his wife Carolyn decided to run. Even something as simple as the launching of a bike-share program. She was 71 years old and had never served in office before. Her departure opened the door for Oscar Goodman. He also figured out how to deal with an political constituency: real estate developers. That raises a fundamental question that the Goodmans are determined to answer: How does a blue-collar city make it in a white-collar world? These and other initiatives helped stabilize the center of the city. The scale of these developments was impossible to replicate within the city of Las Vegas, where land prices and the constraints of a city grid limited how large casinos could be. The event started anyway. Maybe this needs a good kick in the pants, and maybe I could make it into something like the Gaslamp District in San Diego. At the same time, the mayor was pursuing major league sports teams, but running into intense opposition. On your left was the Strip, maybe five buildings. For decades, the casino resorts of the Strip, located outside city limits on county land, have overshadowed the older attractions of the city. Together, the mayor and superintendent have focused on ways to better serve low-income students in the city proper. Despite some recent investments, Las Vegas remains a working-class, service-job town. The county used its portion of sales and hotel room taxes to build an infrastructure that would support sprawling suburban development. There were three Elvises in the lead -- each sporting the oversized gold-framed sunglasses, bouffant pompadour and white rhinestone suit that the King wore during his Las Vegas years. The city itself has a robust services industry -- something with relatively little upscale employment. But a year into her second term, she is struggling with a familiar issue -- the rivalry between the city of Las Vegas and surrounding Clark County. While downtown Las Vegas was declining, the Goodmans were thriving. He liked its bars and subcultures. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Everything is different in Las Vegas. They need not have worried. Today, the once-prevalent claims that Hsieh could single-handedly remake Las Vegas look far-fetched. Developers responded by transforming the desert into strip malls and high-end residential enclaves. He envisioned a time when the city, not just the casino resorts of the Strip, would become a global destination. Laughter swept through the assembled group as the media rushed toward the Elvises. The city was checked by the casinos and county interests one more time. But for Las Vegas to thrive, both believe it needs more skilled workers. But Oscar had dreamed of something more -- a city center with a diverse combination of residents, businesses and visitors. Oscar established his own practice as a defense lawyer, and soon attracted a lucrative clientele that consisted largely of organized crime figures. The tech jobs that have migrated to the Vegas area are nearly all in the suburbs. To some extent, it worked. Moreover, the local school district covers all of Clark County, leaving the mayor with only limited influence over the schools. But one piece of stagecraft was conspicuously absent: There were no bikes. You might call this Las Vegas politics, Goodman-style. While Carolyn was building a prep school in the suburbs, a new mayor, Jan Jones, was taking her first steps toward reviving downtown. The bike event started out early on an October morning in standard photo-op fashion. That leadership style was on display the day of the Elvis bike-share brigade. By proposing an ingenious land swap with Lehman Brothers, which owned part of the old Union Pacific railyard downtown, Oscar secured the 61 downtown acres that now include the brain research facility and the performing arts center. Carolyn served as president and chief fundraiser. For the past two years, Lisa Morris Hibbler, who heads the department, has worked with the school district, other jurisdictions and social services providers to coordinate services for students and their families, providing meals during the weekend and holidays, creating summer academies, and offering individual tutoring. In their influential book, The Race Between Education and Technology, economists Lawrence Katz and Claudia Goldin argued that educational attainment drives economic success. The Freemont Street Experience helped bring people downtown again. Back then, Las Vegas was a city of 70, people, but when Carolyn first saw it, it looked like a tiny outpost in the desert. He attended events with showgirls on each arm. Just after 9, the primary speaker, Mayor Carolyn Goodman, arrived. Las Vegas voters, many of whom were new arrivals from other parts of the country, were delighted to have a flamboyant outsider representing them. It was an audacious undertaking. By , reporters from the local TV stations were there. Meanwhile, the city increasingly became a magnet for a poorer population of casino and hospital workers, many of them Latino immigrants. Moving its headquarters to downtown seemed the perfect answer. Jones used the power of eminent domain to convert part of Fremont Street into a covered pedestrian mall, where visitors would be entertained by a nightly light show. A reporter asked if the year-old mayor would be riding a bike that day. Nothing was happening. That understates the entry-level wages at Zappos. And during his tenure, the city arranged a land swap that opened 61 downtown acres for development. The idea was to turn a collection of small downtown casinos into, in effect, one giant entertainment space. With a story, room hotel and such over-the-top amenities as an entrance modeled on St. Even a half-billion dollar education initiative enacted by the state in is unlikely to move those numbers very much. He was re-elected twice. But when Jones proposed to consolidate city and county governments, allies such as the casino magnate Steve Wynn, who had made a major investment in the downtown Golden Nugget, begged off. He wanted a downtown with businesses, residents and attractions that included a performing arts center, professional sports teams and museums. At the end of his final term, Oscar arranged to sell the old City Hall to a group of investors who had landed an unusual new tenant, the Zappos online shoe retailer. Carolyn prides herself on that kind of collaboration. Oscar soon established a working majority on the city council. Equally grandiose casinos began appearing on the Strip nearly every year after that. Hsieh himself lives part-time around the corner, in a walled-off trailer park, filled with retro-chic Airstream trailers and tiny houses. Directly across the street is another attraction, the Container Park -- a complex of shipping containers outfitted as hip restaurants and shops, surrounding a playground and stage. The consolidation push died. It has invested in more than 50 small businesses and more than tech companies, and it has opened a school where children can learn to be entrepreneurs. That was slow to develop. He clearly has. Oscar had a B. The Goodmans were an unlikely addition to Las Vegas when they arrived in Carolyn was the daughter of a prominent New York obstetrician and a graduate of Bryn Mawr. Today, those acres are at the heart of an area that includes the 5-million-square-foot World Market Center, a brain research facility run by the Cleveland Clinic, a vast premium outlet shopping mall and the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Fully 85 percent of school funding comes from the state. The number of downtown visitors rose.
