Get to know Gordon
I want to represent your interests in our town, so it’s only right that you get to know me better. Politics can make people seem cartoonish, so I want you to know there’s a living, breathing human here, and I have many of the same hopes, joys, and struggles you do.
First of all, I am so proud to be a husband to my amazing wife of 23 years, Nadia Gorham-Daniels, and a dad to our 18 year old son, Amir, and 16 year old daughter, Alia. There is no greater joy in my life than the time I get to spend with them.
We first moved to the Callonwood community in Indian Trail eleven years ago and I am so glad we did. We came here for the schools, but we have fallen in love with area and that’s the big reason I chose to run for legislature. I want to help build a better future for this area and this beautiful state.
I grew up in New York City, where my dad was a real estate commissioner. I was raised with the work ethic that understood that only through diligence and effort can we expect to build a better life for ourselves. In college, I took a full load of classes by day, and I worked a full time job by night. I’m grateful for the lessons and drive that instilled in me.
I started working in banking as a Trust Tax Accountant, then moved into commercial banking. I worked in private sector accounting for a while too, overseeing millions of dollars in assets. I’ve also worked as the CFO of the North Carolina Dance Theater (NCDT), and as a Tax Accountant with Time Warner Cable.
