Gordon Neff is the Executive Director of The Seniors Trust and a long-time advocate for seniors.
He has served as Executive Director since 2014. Since then, he has spearheaded nationwide legislative campaigns, petition drives, and voter initiatives on behalf of senior citizens. He’s committed to being a passionate voice for seniors both on Capitol Hill and across the country.
“We need to keep after the government and get things done for seniors. We must improve the lives of our senior citizens,” he says.
Gordon was born to a mining family in a small coal town in Pennsylvania.
He proudly served in the U.S. Army for three years.
While in the army, he attended trade school in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, becoming a motion picture photographer. After graduating, he was assigned to White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico where he applied his skills in a top-secret setting, a job he found fascinating and rewarding.
Gordon left the army with an honorable discharged and then was hired by the Pennsylvania Railroad in Pittsburgh. He worked for the company from 1965 until 2005. “That was back in the days when you stayed with a company. The Railroad was good to me and I enjoyed the work there,” he fondly recalls.
Describing himself as “definitely a seasoned citizen,” he has a keen understanding of what so many retired people in America are going through. That’s why he’s dedicated himself to forcing Congress to pass desperately needed legislation which will improve the lives of senior citizens.
