O'Dowd extends sympathy to family of Victor Gordon

4 September, 2017 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O’Dowd has expressed his deepest sympathy and that of his party colleagues in Upper Bann to the family and friends of veteran Portadown journalist, Victor Gordon.

 Mr O’ Dowd said:

“Victor Gordon was a familiar figure at local and wider political events and he had his own unassuming way of getting the news for his readers. He covered many of the major news stories both locally and nationally.

“A familiar sight at Council meetings or major political summits, Victor would have the notepad and pen in hand with the camera in the pocket ready for the accompanying photo.

“While he was always courteous and had a quick wit you knew you had to be on top of your game when being interviewed by Victor.

"He will be sadly missed by local politicians, journalists and readers of politics."
