Jodi Rell on Principles & Values

Republican CT Governor

The time to heal has begun

A few moments ago I raised my right hand, humbled in spirit and with hopefulness in my heart, to take the oath of office as Governor of the State of Connecticut. It is not a position I sought through the normal course of electoral politics, but little has seemed normal over the past several months. Few could have accurately predicted the incredible, seemingly unrelenting, series of events that have led to todayís actions. It has been a time of profound disappointment and disillusionment. It has been a moment in history that we never thought we would see, and fervently hope that we never see again.

Yet while the peopleís trust in government has been weakened, I know that Connecticut is resilient. Ours is a strength that is centuries old, but ever new. The wellspring of our stateís strength is untainted by corruption, and untouched by controversy. Itís the optimism of Connecticut families -- always ready to look forward to tomorrow. The time to heal has begun.
