ABOUT Governor Bev Perdue:
Governor Perdue is North Carolina’s first female governor. The daughter of a Virginia coal miner who advanced to CEO of a utility company, Perdue also worked hard to rise steadily up the ranks. She moved to North Carolina in the mid-1970s and worked as a hospital administrator then decided to run for office. She served two terms in the N.C. House of Representatives in 1986 and then went on to serve five terms in the N.C. Senate. She was elected the state’s first female lieutenant governor in 200 and re-elected in 2004. Prior to her election as Governor, Perdue established herself as one of the most active and accomplished Lieutenant Governors in North Carolina history. As governor she received kudos for her oversight of the state’s preparation and response to Hurricane Irene in 2011.
