SV director seeks supervisors post
January 11, 2013

CRANBERRY TWP — Seneca Valley School Board member Eric Gordon Wednesday announced his candidacy for a seat on the township’s board of supervisors.

Gordon said he will not seek re-election to the school board if he wins the Republican primary in April for the open seat in Cranberry. His school board term expires in November.

Gordon, 31, is a nuclear industry consultant who previously worked for Westinghouse Electric. He resides in Cranberry Township with his wife and daughter.

Describing himself as a fiscal conservative, Gordon is vying for the seat currently held by Supervisor Dave Root.

Gordon said he’d strive to forge a better relationship between the township and state-level officials in Harrisburg. He’d also stringently follow and adhere to the Cranberry Plan, the township’s long-term guideline for growth approved by residents.

He also said he already has solid working relationships with the current supervisors because of his role on the school board.

Gordon is the treasurer of the Butler County Republican Committee.
