  • Next In Line: Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno
    a Republican from Middletown and one of Guadagno s biggest supporters Guadagno s emergence can be traced to her appearance before a GOP organization screening committee Not many of us knew of her or knew her well recalls state Senator Jennifer Beck of Red Bank But the force of her presentation and her charisma changed the room She was so extraordinary in her presence her oral skills her ability to deliver a message She was by far the best candidate After she was elected Guadagno brought a new profile to the sheriff s office according to Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Pat Menna a Democrat Probably because of her personality she was able to connect with people outside the law enforcement and legal communities he says When Christie came calling he liked matching up his background as the U S attorney in New Jersey with Guadagno s even longer career as a prosecutor But he also wanted to be sure there would be no clash of personalities His thinking on the topic was revealed in an interview with Dan Balz of the Washington Post for Balz s book Collision 2012 a history of the last presidential campaign Christie told Balz I just think that my personality is kind of big and I don t think that you necessarily always want to pick big personalities for vice president That can be problematic in the execution of the job if you win Recommended Reading The Last Nest Saving Our Bald Eagle Population Guadagno does not have Christie s outsize personality few people do But she was known as an aggressive prosecutor Jurors don t expect prosecutors to be warm and fuzzy says a criminal defense attorney who tries cases in the federal courthouse From the perspective of a defense attorney she was very tough You can be adversaries without being adversarial Guadagno was adversarial the lawyer adds Guadagno successfully prosecuted former Essex County Executive Thomas D Alessio on extortion fraud and money laundering charges She also handled a case that prompted a federal district court judge to demand that the U S attorney s office apologize for improperly releasing grand jury information Guadagno s courtroom skills were readily apparent in her debate this fall against Milly Silva who was Democrat Barbara Buono s running mate in the gubernatorial election Guadagno spoke without notes argued without hesitation on behalf of her client Chris Christie and repelled attacks against Christie s record by slamming her opponent At times she was as impatient and dismissive as Christie is known to be declaring at one point I put more trust in the people of New Jersey than I would in the 120 people sitting in the Legislature in Trenton I ve gotten a lot of time to get to know them In explaining that comment to New Jersey Monthly Guadagno added Some legislators stay too long in their positions and lose focus on what s important I think that the focus should always be on the people
