Our Hearst newspapers today reported that, nearly a year after she retired from office, there are no plans nor funds in place for the state to commission a portrait of ex-Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
In response, her successor, Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy, just issued the following statement: “The Governor plans to address this issue with members of the legislature. Governor Rell served our state at a time of tremendous uncertainty, and she should receive her full due honor and respect.”
