Father of Lt. Gov. passes

TRENTON – PolitickerNJ has learned that Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno’s father has passed away.

Guadagno’s father had been battling stage IV prostate cancer for some time.

The staff of PolitickerNJ sends its condolences to the lieutenant governor and her family.

During a ribbon-cutting ceremony at a cancer research company in Hanover Township in April 2011, Guadagno got choked up while mentioning her father’s fight with the disease.

“I am the lieutenant governor first here today, but I’m also the daughter of a man who has fourth stage prostate cancer,” she said, visibly choking up.
