Former development official to run for lieutenant governor

CARSON CITY — Bob Goodman, who served for seven years as state economic development director, is making another run for lieutenant governor.

Goodman, in a campaign statement, said Wednesday he doesn’t need “on the job training,” because he has worked for 40 years gaining “superb contacts” nationally and internationally.

Goodman ran second in the Democratic primary election in 2010, gathering 18 percent of the vote in a four-person field. The nomination was won by Jessica Sferrazza, who had 42 percent.

In his statement, Goodman said he would work to attract investments and create jobs through industry and tourism. “No longer will we have the ceremonial job the Nevada Lieutenant Governor’s office has become,” he said.

Filing for the office opens March 3.
