Ironwood warden, Herndon reassigned
Special to the Times

Blythe - Ironwood State Prison (ISP) Warden Debra Herndon has been temporarily reassigned to a position in Sacramento as of April 17. In her absence, Chuckawalla Valley State Prison's Chief Deputy Warden Gary Sandor has been asked to step in as the acting warden at ISP.

Herndon reported to Headquarter's Office of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation on April 22. Sandor began as acting warden at ISP on the same day,

"I have always loved working here at ISP and I plan on keeping my residence in Blythe, as I love the camaraderie with city, its people and the town of Blythe," said Herndon, "It is a temporary assignment and I plan on coming back."

David Kehl, a member of the prison's citizen advisory committee, said the news of Herndon's leaving for Sacramento was "bittersweet."

"She has been an active community leader and our schools have benefited from her tenure," Kehl said. "But as we all know, the cream floats to the top. Debra's upward journey continues and I wish her well."

Sandor began his career with CDCR in March 1983, as a CO at Folsom State Prison.

He's worked for California State Prison, Sacramento, California State Prison-Corcoran, Pelican Bay State Prison, Valley State Prison for Women, California Institution for Women, Ironwood and Chuckawalla Valley.
