Kathy McGuiness Sworn-In As State Auditor Today

At the Old State House in Dover today, Kathy McGuiness was sworn-in as the first female Delaware State Auditor.  With a packed room, many other Delaware public officials attended the ceremony along with McGuiness’ family and friends.

Other legislators and public officials in attendance were Speaker of the House Pete Schwartzkopf, soon-to-be sworn in State Senator Trey Paradee, Lieutent Governor Bethany Hall-Long, new State Representative Kendra Johnson, and new State Senator Darius Brown.

Former Delaware Governor Jack Markell gave opening remarks.

After that, McGuiness was officially sworn in by retired Superior Court Judge Susan Del Pesco.

McGuiness gave her own remarks for about six minutes but unfortunately the file was too big to download from my phone.  She did say she would work hard for the office and her strongest expectation was to herself.  She vowed to do right by the people of Delaware.

After the ceremony, McGuiness graciously walked around the room and thanked every single person for attending.  Including myself.  I shook her hand and said “Congratulations, fresh start.”  She said thank you.

It was odd seeing Jack Markell again.  I can’t remember the last time I saw him.  Jack did not say hello to me but I wasn’t exactly in a position where he could so there is that.
