Body

 

WHEREAS, Pamela Gordon began her career in the Columbus City Attorney’s Office in 2000 as a Principal Attorney under the auspices of former City Attorney Janet E. Jackson

 

WHEREAS, Prior to joining the Columbus City Attorney’s Office, Pamela served as an Assistant Vice President, Employee Relations Manager, and a Senior Employee Relations Consultant at Bank One Corp. In these various roles Pam supported all of the Bank’s lines of business within a given geographic region, analyzed risk of employment decisions, monitored compliance with employment laws and regulations, provided legal review of responses to agency charges of discrimination and harassment, and served as a single point of contact for several corporate wide initiatives including pre-employment screening and Code of Ethics. Prior to joining Bank One Corp., Pamela worked for the Office of the Ohio Attorney General, the Ohio Department of Administrative Services, and the Ohio Department of Liquor Control

 

WHEREAS, In 2007, Pamela was promoted to Chief of the Labor and Employment Section within the Columbus City Attorney’s Office. In this capacity, Pamela managed the Labor and Employment Section and successfully defended the City in numerous motions for summary judgement and jury trials. Pam handled numerous successful appeals at the 10th District Court of Appeals and the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

 

WHEREAS, In 2019, Pamela was promoted as the Chief of the combined sections of Labor and Employment and Litigation.

 

WHEREAS, Pamela is known to have “magical culinary skills” and has achieved the black belt ranking in the martial arts. One of her favorite martial arts moves is the “unforgiving flesh grab.” On behalf of the Citizens of Columbus, we commend Pamela Gordon for her commitment to public service, and the various roles she has played in serving the City and community.

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBUS: That this Council does hereby commemorate the work of Pamela Gordon, and congratulates Pam on her retirement from the Columbus City Attorney’s Office.
