Big deal. Nobody remembers that the original terminal A was named after Bill O'Neil. Only a few old timers still refer to terminal B as the Murphy building.

Personally I think it is a shame that she is glorified in regards to the Airport. She is the one who promised the Windsor Locks parking lot owners that "If elected, I will make sure Gov. Meskills elevated people mover never operates". They funded her campaign and she was elected. She had the monorail trams mothballed before they could ever carry a passenger thus wasting 5 million dollars. Wasn't it enough the parking lot owners on Route 75 had the road named after her?
