JACKSON-New Jersey’s Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, also a candidate for Governor in 2017 will grace the township of Jackson with her presence tonight at the annual reorganization meeting. The Lt. Governor’s last public appearance in Jackson was at Six Flags Great Adventure in June of 2011 to attend a redevelopment summit hosted by the theme park. Since her visit, no projects discussed at that meeting have come to fruition.
Tonight, she’ll likely be swearing in the council members who won in an uncontested election, a ceremony that has historically brought politicians from near and far. Past attendees have included Governors Chris Christie and Jon Corzine were the most recent dignitaries to swear in elected officials.
After the swearing in, the council will begin appointing professional contracts, including a controversial appointment of former New Jersey family court judge Melanie Donohue Appleby as a labor attorney.
