Two longtime Margate pols retiring

Three members of prominent Atlantic County political families were among the winners in the 1975 elections: Steven Perskie, 30, the son of Atlantic County Judge David Perskie and grandson of New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Joseph Perskie, won re-election to a third term in the State Assembly; William Gormley, 29, the son of former Atlantic County Sheriff Gerald Gormley, was elected Atlantic County Freeholder; and Sigmund Rimm, 43, the son of former Assemblyman and Judge Benjamin Rimm, was elected Margate City Commissioner. Perskie went on to serve in the State Senate, as Chief of Staff to the Governor, and as Casino Control Commission Chairman. He is currently serving his second stint as a Superior Court Judge. Gormley went to the State Assembly in 1977 and to the Senate in 1982. Rimm announced this week that he will not seek re-election to a ninth term, ending a 32-year career in local government.
