New Jersey’s lieutenant governor has received a letter of resignation — from her husband.
Kim Guadagno’s husband, Michael, is an appeals court judge. In order to collect his pension, he is required to notify the lieutenant governor in her dual role as secretary of state that he’ll reach the mandatory retirement age of 70 this month.
In the letter, Michael Guadagno hints at her campaign for governor in this year’s election.
“With your term ending in January 2018, and my income substantially reduced,” he writes, “this may be an excellent opportunity for you to consider a career change to a more lucrative position.”
He concludes the letter: “No need to respond to this letter as we can discuss this matter over dinner.”
