Just super, from our perspective!
This was a really neat lady who showed, regardless of her position, a kindness for the regular people not often seen in public figures even in those times.
Case in point was when she was approached, at one of the many country fairs that she suddenly attended, by a 5 year old girl asking for her autograph, she took the time to not only make a great deal of the little girl, but to give her the autograph requested. She also took the time to find out where the child's father was in order that the child not be left unattended and when she saw that I was not very far away and watching what was happening, she simply nodded to me to acknowledge me and not take away from the moment for that little girl.
That girl was my daughter who is now middle aged and has never forgotten her moment of fame in talking with the governor. Nor have I.
Great lady and due just such an honor.

Why not? She was an outstanding governor. What would her appearance have to do with anything?

Another new terminal that's not heeded. Have you been there lately. Many former gates are now serving food. Only government should be so inept. Hey! What the heck! It's only taxpayer money! And there's a lot more from where that came from. Pay Conecticut citizens! You deserve to be fleeced.

I pity you you poor excuse for a human being, some of you inbred fools have no culture, no brains, no manners and no common sense. Why not take a long walk on a short pier?

Maybe Ella would have also appreciated naming a new shuttle van service to Hartford bus terminal for her as well. Ooops.
Intl Airport has no shuttle service.
better to build more terminals.
Lets alSo do a rail line New Haven to Springfield that few taxpayers will ride.

No NO NO! Do not name anything in or at Bradley Airfield after her. Because of all the damage she has done to the Airport. She raise fuel taxes and fuel sales to airlines drop, caused lay-offs. She allowed towns to tax aircraft and they left, ie Peter Graces(Grace Oil) private jet and caused lay-off. No nothing for her.
