State Sen. Ulysses Currie rescinds his resignation
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 Ulysses Currie rescinded his resignation in a letter Tuesday to Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr.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.
