Meeting Two Lt. GovernorsIn 2008, I was touring the State Capitol Building of my home state (Pennsylvania). As I was walking out of the State Capitol Building, I recognized the Lt. Governor, Catherine Baker Knoll, who was coming in. We chatted for a while, and a staff member agreed to take a photo of the two of us. I was honored to have met a person in that high capacity, and the only woman in Pennsylvania history to achieve that high office (PA still has yet to get a woman Governor). A couple of months after I met her, she passed away. I did cry when I heard the news. I still have the picture of the two of us on my mantle.
Four years later, I was touring the State Capitol Building in Trenton, New Jersey. As I was walking out the door, Kim Guadagno, NJ's first Lt. Governor, came walking by me. She was just as pleasurable as Knoll; she even agreed to get in a photo with me.
Even though I met two Lt. Governors, I did have an opportunity to meet a Governor. I was at a country club event, and got to shake hands and my picture taken with my home state's Governor, Tom Corbett.
