: Fifth grader Ella Briggs was sworn in as Connecticut’s Kid Governor earlier this year. She’s the state’s first openly gay child to be elected to this role. There were plenty of dignitaries on hand at Ella’s swearing in to praise her, including the newly-elected, grown-up Governor Ned Lamont and U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes, along with dozens of Ella’s peers.
