Alice Gordon and her family have lived in Orange County since 1972. They reside just outside of Chapel Hill and Carrboro in the joint planning area of Orange County.
Alice and her husband, Alan, have been married over forty years and have two grown children, Jennifer and David.
In 2000 the family gained a son-in-law, also named David, when Jennifer and he were married at the family's church, University United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill.
Since Alice and Alan now have two granddaughters, there are three generations living in the Chapel Hill - Carrboro area.
In 2013 the family welcomed a daughter-in-law when their son, David, married Elizabeth in a ceremony on Mt. Hood, near Portland, Oregon.
Alice was elected Orange County Commissioner in 1990, and re-elected in 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2006. Organizations endorsing her in 2006 included the Chapel Hill - Carrboro Association of Educators, Citizens Advocating for the Schools (C.A.T.S.), The Independent Weekly, NoMerger.org, Orange County Soccer Alliance, and the Sierra Club. She was also re-elected in 2010, when she ran unopposed for a District 1 seat.
She served as Chair and as Vice Chair of the Board of County Commissioners. Before becoming a county commissioner, she was Chair of the Orange County Planning Board, President of the Chapel Hill Carrboro PTA Council, and Second Vice President of the local League of Women Voters.
