Gov candidate Guadagno selects running mate with North Bergen legal practice

NORTH BERGEN — Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno announced a Bergen County mayor with
a North Bergen legal practice as her running mate for the governorship on Thursday.
Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo will unite with the Republican gubernatorial nominee to face Democratic nominee Phil Murphy and former state assembly speaker Sheila Oliver in November. Rendo would serve as Lieutenant Governor if the Republican ticket is successful.
He has an extensive history in Hudson County. Not only does he also work as an immigration lawyer and founding partner for Mulkay and Rendo on 79th Street, but he also grew up in Union City, according to a biography on Guadagno’s campaign website.
Rendo attended Thomas A. Edison Elementary School and the now-defunct Emerson High School in the area. In 1996, he moved to West New York and worked on the city’s planning board. There, he helped guide a $800 million waterfront redevelopment project. The duo also announced their pairing up at West New York’s Rumba Cubana restaurant, according to Observer.com.
