Shaheen Statement on Passing of Dr. Geoffrey Clark

(Manchester, NH) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement on the passing of philanthropist and community leader, Dr. Geoffrey Clark:

“Like all those who were fortunate to know Geoffrey, I’m heartbroken by his passing. Geoffrey was a pillar in the community as a fierce advocate on issues that have made New Hampshire a better place for all of our families. He fought to preserve our community spaces and historic buildings in Portsmouth, build and support a more sustainable environment for future generations and foster an inclusive society for all of our neighbors,” said Shaheen. “I appreciated his guidance over the years and his continued support to rightfully keep these issues front and center. Geoffrey and Martha worked tirelessly, side by side, to find new ways to give back to our communities. A doctor by training, it makes sense that caring for others wasn’t just what he did - it was who he was. I offer my sincerest condolences to Martha, their family and to all those mourning.”
