Gordon Falcon

Hello Trenton Indian Service Area, My name in Gordon Falcon. I have been affiliated with the TISA Board for about 7 years. I grew up in Trenton and know the area well. I joined the Navy in 1963 and was honorably discharged after 21 years of service as a heavy equipment operator. I moved back to Trenton with my wife and 3 kids and have lived here ever since. I hope to build a network that will help tackle any and all problems the Trenton Indian Service Area faces whether it is housing shortages, jobs, education or agriculture. I love seeing our Service area thrive and our communities full of families.
