Rowland on O'Neill

From Capitol Watch:

"Governor O'Neill was a good friend and a great governor,'' Rowland told Capitol Watch in an e-mail hours before attending O'Neill's funeral Mass. "He was a humble public servant who appreciated the responsibilities of office, took them seriously and did his job with a sense of fairness and decency. His leadership and hard work in the areas of education and transportation will stand for many generations. He will be missed by his many friends across Connecticut. Patty and I will keep him and Nikki in our prayers.'' - former Gov. John Rowland
