‘Bullwhacker’ appointed to state board
A local barber will serve a three-year term on a state board.
Bruce E. Gordon of Craig was appointed by Gov. Bill Owens to the State Examining Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists.
The board is responsible for licensing barbers, cosmeticians, manicurists, instructors, salons, schools and training programs. The board also conducts examinations, inspections and complaint investigations of salons and other facilities.
Gordon owns and operates Bullwhacker’s Barber Shop in Craig. He has been a barber for 33 years and served on the State of Alabama Barber Board for six years. He has also served as the president of the Mobile (Alabama) County Barber Board for three years.
Owens believes Gordon’s experience will add to the ability of the board.
“Bruce has a great deal of experience and will serve the citizens of Colorado well in his new position,” Owens said.
Gordon is excited to find out what he can accomplish during his term on the board and is proud to represent Northwest Colorado.
“I’d like to make a few changes to the licensing process,” said Gordon. “I think it’s good that Owens goes out and gets Northwest Colorado representation on these boards. I look forward to serving on it.”
