Del. Melony Griffith to run for Senate

LARGO — Del. Melony Griffith says she will run for state Senate.

The Prince George’s County Democrat has scheduled an Oct. 15 announcement of her bid to represent District 25.

Sen. Ulysses Currie, a Democrat, currently represents the district. Currie is a former Senate Budget and Taxation Committee chairman. He was censured last year by the Senate for failing to disclose work for a grocery store chain that paid him about $245,000 over several years. He was acquitted of all charges in a bribery trial in federal court in 2011.

Griffith has served in the House of Delegates since 1998. She recently served two terms as chair of the Prince George’s House Delegation.
