After working for Governor Gutierrez, Tenorio became the executive director for the Democratic Party of Guam from 2003 to 2005.[1] and Judiciary Committee Director under Senator Randy Cunliffe in the Guam Legislature. From 2005 to 2007, he worked as a policy advisor to Senator Benjamin Cruz.

Campaign for Lieutenant Governor

In February 2017, Bank of Guam President Lourdes Aflague Leon Guerrero officially announced her bid to be the next Governor of Guam. The former senator selected Tenorio to be her running mate in the Democratic primaries. They beat three other tickets (the Aguon/Limtiaco ticket, the Gutierrez/Bordallo ticket, and the Rodriguez/Cruz ticket) with 32% of the primary vote to become the official nominees.

On November 6, 2018 Lou Leon Guerrero was elected as Guam's first female governor and Tenorio as the first openly gay Lieutenant Governor after defeating the Tenorio/Ada Ticket in the general election with 50.7% of the vote.

As Lt. Governor, Tenorio's focus remains on criminal justice improvements and the expansion of evidence based programs in the corrections and mental health systems. This includes an aggressive policy agenda to expand drug treatment programs, reduce youth detentions, and address racial disparities in the justice system.

Tenorio has also led efforts to improve Guam's public infrastructure and regulatory systems. He has statutory oversight over the expenditure of federal entitlements and competitive grant funds.

Personal life

Joshua Tenorio is openly gay.[3] He is a distant cousin to his predecessor, Ray Tenorio, whom the Leon Guerrero/Tenorio ticket beat in the 2018 gubernatorial election.

On August 12, 2020, Tenorio announced he tested positive to the COVID-19 virus and has experienced mild symptoms.[4]
