Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s official portrait was unveiled this week in Memorial Hall in the State Library, raising the question of whether the state should continue to finance such memorials. The oil painting’s cost of $36,639 was paid for by the state Office Policy and Management. Money for the portrait had not been included in the state budget in 2011, but Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, Rell’s successor, found the money. Should the state stop commissioning such artwork and use photo displays instead? Or should there be private fundraising for this honor? Or are governors owed this tribute after their service? What’s your view?
