Jodi Rell was Connecticut's 87th governor. She served in the legislature, became lieutenant governor, and ascended to the governorship in 2004 when the incumbent was forced to resign during a corruption
investigation. Rell was immensely popular and won re-election in 2006 with the highest vote total in Connecticut history. She decided against running again in the 2010 election and left office at the start of 2011. On Tuesday, her portrait was unveiled at the Connecticut State Library. Characteristically, Rell was surrounded by her grandchildren for the unveiling of the portrait. The artist was Laurel Stern Boeck.
