Meet the Lieutenant Governor

Kim Guadagno

On November 3, 2009, the people of New Jersey selected Monmouth County Sheriff Kim Guadagno to be the first Lieutenant Governor in our state’s history. Lt. Gov-Elect Kim Guadagno was born in Waterloo, Iowa, moving all over the country as a child before she made New Jersey her home.  Her husband, Mike, grew up in Monmouth County where they decided to raise their three boys, Kevin, Michael and Anderson.

After graduating from Ursinus College in 1980 and then American University law school in 1983 Kim began her public career as a federal prosecutor where she earned a reputation as being tough and independent. She started out working in Brooklyn for the Organized Crime and Racketeering Strike Force.  When Kim married her husband they decided they wanted to raise their family in New Jersey so she moved to the United States Attorney’s office in Newark, New Jersey.
