Robert Gordon CBE
Statement on the death of Robert Gordon CBE, Leader of Hertfordshire County Council

“Rob was a great friend and an inspirational leader for Hertfordshire from whom I learned so much. His passing will come as a shock to many and I will miss him dearly. We will never quite fill the hole that he has left behind – but his memorial is a county shaped to his plan and seen as one of the best places to live and work in the country.

“My thoughts and sympathies are with his family at this sad time.”

David Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire

David Lloyd served as a county councillor in Hertfordshire from 2001-2017 and was Robert Gordon’s deputy from 2007 until 2012.
