GOV. MALLOY & LT. GOV. WYMAN STATEMENTS ON THE PASSING OF ELLEN CAMHI
 
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman this afternoon released the following statements on the passing of Ellen Camhi, who served as the longtime chairwoman of the Stamford Democratic City Committee and was most recently a member of the State Board of Education:
 
“Ellen Camhi was a dear friend of mine who tirelessly dedicated herself to her community and to public service.  She had charisma and was a passionate leader with character and vision,” Governor Malloy said.  “Her impact was profound – she served as a mentor to me and inspired my career in public service, in addition to that of Supreme Court Justice Andrew McDonald, Attorney General George Jepsen and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, along with countless others.  There’s no doubt that she will be missed by many.  Cathy and I send our heartfelt condolences to her family and all of her friends in the Stamford community.”
 
“Ellen was always a lot of fun but she was also a true leader,” Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman said.  “What I really admired about her was that she spoke up for what she believed in and she truly cared about people – especially her family.”
