|Description:||Madeleine Z. Bordallo (born May 31, 1933), currently is the Delegate from Guam to the United States House of Representatives. She was born in Graceville, Minnesota, and grew up on Guam after her father was hired by the U.S. Navy to become principal of George Washington High School. After her high school graduation in 1951, she went back to the mainland and attended St. Mary’s College in South Bend, Indiana, and the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota. Madeleine was a television host and presenter for KUAM-TV on the island of Guam during the 1950s and 1960s.
Madeleine was married to Ricardo Bordallo, who served as Governor of Guam from 1975 to 1979 and from 1983 to 1987. While serving as a first lady, she worked to emphasize the arts in the classroom and to increase awareness of the Chamorro culture. Mrs. Bordallo was a member of the Guam Legislature on two different occasions, serving from 1981 to 1982 and again from 1986 to 1994.
Mrs. Bordallo was an unsuccessful candidate for Governor of Guam in 1990, following the death of her husband. Jose (Ping) Duenas ran as Bordallo’s running mate for lieutenant governor in the 1990 gubernatorial election.
In 1994, she ran alongside Carl T.C. Gutierrez on the Democratic ticket and was elected Lieutenant Governor of Guam, becoming the first elected woman in this position. She served from 1995 to 2002. In this role, she worked to promote tourism and environmentalism.
In 2002, as Madeleine Z. Bordallo reached her second term as Lt. Governor of Guam and as Delegated Robert Underwood vacated his seat and attempted to run for governor, she campaigned for and was elected as a Democrat to the House of Representatives, serving from January 2003 to the present, and is the first woman to represent Guam in the U.S. Congress. She is one of six non-voting delegates to the House of Representatives. While in Congress, she has devoted herself to economic issues and has helped to pass legislation that aids small business on Guam. She has also been involved in military issues.
