Nearly a quarter-century of a Goodman in the mayor's seat.

That's what Las Vegans will have if Mayor Carolyn Goodman is successful in her third bid for the mayor's post.

Her campaign manager, Tom Letizia, confirmed Tuesday that Goodman, 79, will file for a third term when the filing period opens Jan. 22, 2019.

Goodman followed her husband, Oscar's three terms when she won and took office July 6, 2011. She won re-election in 2015.

She will be term-limited if she wins.

"Nobody has announced yet, but there is always somebody who will run," Letizia told News 3 about any opposition.

The primary is April 2, 2019.

The mayor is paid $138,568 a year.

Oscar became mayor in 1999 and served until 2011. He was term-limited and replaced by his wife.

Oran Gragson was the longest-serving mayor in Las Vegas history, from 1959 through 1975.
