Edwards Statement on Passing of Former Prince George’s County Executive Wayne Curry
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards (MD-4) released the following statement regarding the passing of former Prince George’s County Executive Wayne Curry, who had been battling lung cancer.
“Today, Prince George’s County mourns the loss of former County Executive Wayne K. Curry, the first African American to become county executive in the Washington metropolitan region.  CE Curry guided Prince George’s County into becoming one of the most affluent counties in the country.  His commitment to economic development as county executive and after leaving office helped lay the foundation for the progress we are seeing in Prince George’s County today.  My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Sheila, and their two children during this difficult time.”
