Today Lt. Governor Anthony Brown released the following statement:

“Today, Prince George’s County, and the state of Maryland, has lost a leader whose fight for justice, fairness, economic equality, and a brighter future for all of our children was matched only by his passion for service and a lifelong commitment to advocacy. And Karmen and I have lost a friend who worked every day to make our county, and our state, a better place.
“Wayne Curry was an advocate in the best sense of the word: a fighter who never stopped championing his vision for a better, stronger, more inclusive Prince George’s County. He was smart and tough – a leader who you always wanted on your side. And he never shied away from tough challenges, including his final battle with cancer.
“I, along with an entire generation of leaders, public servants, and Prince Georgians, stand on the shoulders of the legacy he left behind. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Sheila, his children, and all of his friends and family throughout Maryland.”
