Miss Sandyston 2016
Congratulations Erma Gormley
Sandyston Senior of the Year 2016
Erma Gormley was presented with the Senior of the Year Award at Sandyston Day held Saturday, June 11, 2016. In the picture is Jeff Parrot, Sussex County Clerk, Mayor George B. Harper, Jr., Erma Gormley and Deputy Mayor Fred MacDonald.
Erma moved to Sandyston in 1968 from Bergen County and quickly found herself involved in local government when she joined the Sandyston-Walpack School Board in 1970 where she remained for 13 years. In 1983, Erma ran for Township Committee and won against Harold “Hap” Haskins. Erma served on the Sandyston Township Committee from 1983 to 1997, where she was the first woman to be elected to the Township Committee. She was also the first woman to serve as Mayor, doing so in 1984, 1986, 1987 and 1995. During this time, Erma also served on the Sussex County Board of Chosen Freeholders from 1990 – 1997. In 1997 Erma resigned her position as a Freeholder to pursue the Sussex County Clerk position. Erma was successfully elected to the position of Sussex County Clerk and served in that position for 13 years from 1997 – 2010. Erma and her husband, Gene, live in Sandyston and enjoy spending time with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and friends. Mayor Harper commented during the presentation “Erma was a tremendous leader and gave everything she had to Sandyston Township”. In accepting the award, Erma smiled, thanking everyone and said “everything I do or did is because I love to and because I want to do for my town, county and country and for no other reason than it makes me happy”.
