Mr. Curry was the sole applicant seeking the candidacy for the North Abaco seat.
This should come as no surprise because the Prime Minister and leader of the PLP, the Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie advised the public on May 18, 2012 that Mr. Renardo Curry had indicated a preference to forego a senatorial appointment in order to put himself in a position of maximum readiness for the anticipated bye-election in the North Abaco constituency.
Prime Minister Christie, the self-described bridge between Sir Lynden and the next generation of national leaders, reiterated that was still committed to presenting fresh, new, young, exciting and energetic candidates to the Bahamian people as he establishes the next generation of the party’s leadership. This is deliberately designed to facilitate an orderly and seamless leadership transition in the PLP and nationally.
This thirty-Eight year old businessman was born in Nassau on July 25, 1974 and is a 1992 graduate of the Grand Bahama Catholic High School. Mr. Curry furthered is education at the Palm Beach Community College and Everest University in Florida where he majored in Accounting and Business Management.
Mr. Curry worked extensively in the hospitality industry in Abaco before becoming an entrepreneur in the local services industry.
He remains active in the local community, is a youth leader and served as chairman of the Murphy Town Township Committee for Local Government. Additionally, Mr. Curry is a former council member of the Central Abaco District Council.
He is married to the former Temeka Cooper and they have two daughters, Reniah and Reniqua.
If successful at the polls, Mr. Curry will join a class of government parliamentarians that are collectively among the youngest group ever to sit in the halls of parliament. This, the Prime Minister said, was yet another early demonstration of his determination to prepare the country for a new generation of leadership.
