ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno will address the Opening General Session of the NJ Credit Union League’s 2014 Convention and Annual Meeting next month in Atlantic City.
Kim Guadagno was elected New Jersey’s first Lieutenant Governor in November 2009 and was sworn into office the following January together with Governor Chris Christie. In addition to serving as the Lt. Governor, Kim Guadagno serves as the 33rd Secretary of State.
Lt. Governor Guadagno is leading the Christie Administration's efforts to improve the state’s economic vitality, encourage job growth, streamline government, and make businesses feel welcome again in New Jersey.

Lt. Governor Guadagno also oversees the New Jersey Partnership for Action (PFA), the State’s comprehensive economic development strategy. Designed to serve businesses of all sizes and development stages, the PFA provides access to a variety of resources to ensure business success. It is a three-pronged public-private approach to economic development and the starting point for all initiatives, policies, and efforts to grow the state’s economy and create quality, sustainable jobs in our communities. The three elements of the PFA include the Business Action Center, which reports directly to her and provides the business community with a single point of contact; the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, serving as the state’s “bank for business;” and Choose New Jersey, an independently funded and operated 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation created to encourage and nurture economic growth throughout New Jersey.
As the Secretary of State, Lt. Governor Guadagno is New Jersey’s chief election official, oversees promotion of the state’s $38 billion tourism industry and administers programs related to the arts, culture and history.
