Senator Hassan Statement on Passing of Former State Senator Mary Louise Hancock

WASHINGTON – Senator Maggie Hassan issued the following statement on the passing of former State Senator Mary Louise Hancock:

“Former State Senator Mary Louise Hancock was a role model and mentor to generations of Granite Staters and political leaders – including some presidents – and I am deeply saddened to learn of her passing. As the first woman state planning director in the nation, Mary was a trail blazer for countless women entering public service across New Hampshire, and I was blessed to be able to call her both a mentor and a friend. Tom and my thoughts are with the entire Hancock family and all of her loved ones during this difficult time.”
