Volunteer of the Month – April 2023 – Judy Gordon
Maybe you’ve read all the Letters to the Editor in the Albuquerque Journal or the Rio Rancho Observer or surely you have read some of the Miss Information columns in past DPSC Newsletters. Well those poignant letters and columns come from our own Judy Gordon! Judy was the long-time editor of this newsletter until just a few months ago. She and Ann Kepley institutionalized a qualitative review after every election that is called “Lessons Learned.” You probably have seen Judy snapping pictures DPSC events, and she is always quick to take on new, interesting projects. To top it all off, Judy is also the DPSC Secretary. Her contributions have really helped us move our party in a forward direction.
Judy was born in Lancaster, PA. She went to college at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) where she earned a Bachelor’s in Economics and a Master’s degree in Public Policy. She was an Assistant Inspectior General (IG) in the U.S. Department of Commerce for much of here career overseeing the decennial census, weather and climate programs, and patent office operations, among other things.
Judy has lived in Sandoval County since 2017. Besides being an outstanding volunteer who we can count on time and again, she is an excellent writer and a super homemade bread maker! Below is a picture of Judy receiving a highly coveted award from Sandoval County’s own Laura Montoya, the New Mexico State Treasurer.
Thank you, Judy Gordon for all you do for the Democratic Party of Sandoval County.
