Republican grand dame, Jo “Mama Jo” McKenzie passed away Friday night. She was 80.
The Republican heavyweight, who was a confidant and chief of protocol for former Republican governor John Rowland, was a well-known character in her own right, boasting a dramatic wardrob and wit, and edgy political and business savvy as well.
A veteran restaurateur who, for several years, owned the tony Copper Beech Inn in Ivoryton, McKenzie was a regular at the area’s most prestigious “must be seen” parties. http://cour.at/Ir2QbX
