CURRAN WINS NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ATTORNEYS GENERAL
Last night Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph
Curran Jr. was awarded the prestigious Kelley-Wyman Memorial
Award from his fellow
Attorneys General at their annual Summer Meeting in Coeur D’Alene,
Idaho. Considered the National Association of Attorneys General
(NAAG) most coveted annual award, it is given to the Attorney General
who has done the most to advance the objectives of that association.
"I can't think of a more deserving person than Joe Curran
to receive the National Association of Attorneys General Kelley-Wyman
Award. During his twenty years of exemplary service as Maryland's
Attorney General, he has distinguished himself and brought credit
to all of the nation's attorneys general. He is truly a public
servant in the very best sense of the word. He has served as a
role model and mentor to many of his colleagues around the country,
and I am very proud to have served with him," said
Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker, who chaired the selection
committee for this award.
Attorney General Curran is the longest-serving Attorney General
in the country, and is the longest serving elected Attorney General
in Maryland history.
