Blitz gone as Atlantic Prosecutor

A casualty of Francis Blee’s loss in February’s Special Election Convention for State Senate: longtime Atlantic County Prosecutor Jeffrey Blitz.

Sources say that the appointment of a new Prosecutor is imminent, and that Blitz will not get the reappointment he wanted. Blitz is a close ally of former State Senator Bill Gormely, which put him on a different side of the new Senator, Republican James “Sonny” McCullough. McCullough, a Gormley foe, beat Blee by a 61%-39% margin.
