Senator Hassan Recognizes Gerald Kotkowski of Hampton as March 2019 Granite Stater of the Month

WASHINGTON –Senator Maggie Hassan today recognized Gerald Kotkowski of Hampton as the March 2019 Granite Stater of the Month for his volunteer work helping people undergoing cancer treatment and those who are blind and visually impaired. 

When Gerald Kotkowski was preparing for retirement, he knew he would have more time on his hands and wanted to find a way to give back to his community. Inspired by his own life experiences, Gerald chose to serve as a volunteer driver to help people undergoing cancer treatment, as well as those who experience visual impairments. Since he started working with both Future in Sight and the American Cancer Society, Gerald has provided more than 400 rides to his fellow Granite Staters in need.

Senator Hassan launched the “Granite Stater of the Month” initiative in 2017 to recognize outstanding New Hampshire citizens who go above and beyond to help their neighbors and make their communities stronger. To nominate a New Hampshire citizen to be a “Granite Stater of the Month,” constituents can complete the nomination form here.
