It was a major reunion this week for the administration of Gov. M. Jodi Rell, who has been out of office for nearly three full years.
Virtually all of the major players of the Rell administration gathered for the official unveiling of her portrait at the state library in Hartford.
They included Rell, her husband Lou, former chief of staff M. Lisa Moody, former Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, former budget director Bob Genuario, and former social services commissioner Michael Starkowski. They were among the biggest players in the Rell years and among the most powerful state employees in their heyday.
The crowd also included former press secretary Chris Cooper, spokesman Adam Liegeot, and commissioner Raeanne V. Curtis, among many others.
As she was greeting people in the crowd, Rell said, “I miss you guys, but I don’t miss the politics.”
