Newsday Honors Brad Gerstman as "Long Islander of the Week"

Roslyn, NY; November 8th, 2010

Brad Gerstman, Co-Founder of Gotham Government Relations, received yesterday the prestigious honor of being named “Long Islander of the Week” by Newsday. The article lists Gerstman’s charitable work, including his role as: board member of the Nassau University Medical Center; vice chairman of the Long Island Medical Foundation; governor’s appointee to the Advisory Council on Interactive Media and Youth Violence; and former state advocate for Autism Speaks.

“To have Newsday and Columnist Ellis Henican recognize me is a huge honor,” Gerstman says. “An even bigger honor though is being able to give back to my community. My son is on the Autism Spectrum and I feel it’s an obligation to give back, and to help those who have found themselves in situations far worse than ours.”

Gerstman was also recently honored by Child Abuse Prevention Services. Additionally, he serves on the board of Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County and as Chairman of the Tom Suozzi Long Island Autism Coalition. Through his work at Gotham, Gerstman represents a number of special needs schools, charities, and other developmental disability entities.
