State Sen. Ulysses Cur­rie re­scinds his res­ig­na­tion

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

A state sen­a­tor who an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion early last month now says he in­tends to stay in the Gen­eral Assem­bly.

The Daily Record re­ported that Sen. Ulysses Cur­rie re­scinded his res­ig­na­tion in a let­ter Tues­day to Se­nate Pres­i­dent Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr.

Mr. Cur­rie cited con­cerns over the “petty po­lit­i­cal jock­ey­ing and deal­mak­ing” that has over­taken the process to name his re­place­ment.

The 79-year-old had said ear­lier that he can no longer serve with the strength and energy his con­stituents de­serve.

He said this week that he had ex­pected that his wife, the Rev. Shirley A. Gravely-Cur­rie, would finish the re­main­ing two years of his term.
