Currey told me he was proud of the increased Democratic presence in Frederick County and was pleased to have two Democratic congressmen representing the county.
He is excited about the growth of the Western Maryland Democratic Caucus and plans to continue serving on their board of directors.
He had told me during a previous interview he was not intending to run for another term. He felt now was the time to step down and let another take his place. Currey felt that by resigning now it would give his replacement six months to see if this is what they expect and time to develop into a leader for the next term.
The committee just selected Derek Shackelford and Mark Jafari to fill two male slots resulting from Dr. Milad Pooran moving from the area and Stephen Slater planning to run for Maryland state delegate in district 3-b. The twelve member committee is bound by by-laws to have equal gender representation.
Currey said the committee will advertise the open position and interview applicants.
Democratic voters will elect a new committee consisting of 6 men and 6 women in the primary election held June 24, 2014.
