Former Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno was sworn in as the president of the Monmouth County 200 Club last night at the non-profit’s reorganization meeting at the Spring Lake Golf Club.
Founded in 1987 by area philanthropists, the Monmouth County 200 Club provides financial assistance to the families of first responders, police, firefighters, EMTS, first aid and others, who have been killed in the line of duty.
