Well, we thought the next State Senate vacancy would be right here in MoCo (D20), but apparently the folks in Prince George’s had other ideas:
Maryland Sen. Ulysses Currie (D-Prince George’s), known as the dean of African American lawmakers in the state Senate, will resign next month after a 30-year career in the General Assembly.
Currie, 79, submitted his letter of resignation to Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) on Friday morning.

Currie, a resident of District Heights, was a member of the House of Delegates from 1987 until 1995, when he was elected to the Senate. During his three-decade career he became one of the most powerful and popular lawmakers in Annapolis.
The Sun has a copy of Currie’s resignation letter to Senate President Mike Miller.
The sharks are circling the waters in District 25 even as we speak.
