Gary Martin, Maintenance Technician of the General Services Department, was named New Kent County Employee of the Month for the month of May.  Martin has been employed with the County for five and a half years and was the County’s first Employee of the Month honoree.

In addition to his nominations for this honor, Martin’s file is full of letters of thanks and commendations for his work.  The continuing theme is that he not only goes above and beyond in responding to New Kent County’s needs but anticipates and is proactive in communicating things that are likely to become issues. 

This is what was said about Martin:

“Gary is an awesome employee who has truly gone above and beyond the call of duty in many ways.  I want to say that this month Gary has come to the Board Room after hours two times to fix the air conditioning.    These two nights happened to be the nights which were highly attended by the public.  In addition, the Board Room was extremely hot and Gary was able to work quickly without disruption to the meetings.  His actions allowed both the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission to conduct meetings without all of the members and citizens being uncomfortable.”

“Mr. Martin has made a difference to me by his willingness to work hard, be honest and respectful and go above and beyond the normal work that would be expected of him.”

Martin received his award from County Administrator Rodney Hathaway in April.
