(HARTFORD, CT) - Governor Dannel P. Malloy released the following statement in remembrance of the 30th anniversary of the death of Connecticut Governor Ella T. Grasso, on February 5, 1981.
"Ella Grasso's impact on Connecticut is immeasurable. She will continue to be remembered for her love for the people of this state, her down-to-earth approach to governing and, of course, her handling of the 'Blizzard of '78.'
