Cardin Statement on Former Prince George’s County Executive Wayne Curry

 

 

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), released the following statement on the passing of former Prince George’s County Executive Wayne Curry:

 

“Prince George’s County has lost a tremendous leader with the passing of Wayne K. Curry. My thoughts and prayers are with Shelia, Julian and Taylor during this trying time.  As a young man Wayne was a civil rights trailblazer; as County Executive he used his passion and visionary leadership to shape Prince George’s County into an economic engine. ”

“Wayne Curry worked hard to make Prince George’s County the remarkable place it is today. I hope we can take solace in knowing that his legacy has inspired young people to serve their state and nation.  I’m thankful for the opportunity to have worked with him and for his friendship.”

Sen. Benjamin Cardin
