Some Question Whether Rep. Curry Todd Lives in His District

Collierville resident and former Germantown alderman Carole Hinely doesn’t think Rep. Curry Todd lives in the 95th District he represents in the state Legislature, reports The Commercial Appeal.
Todd maintains he does, living with a high school buddy after vacating his Collierville home following a divorce that was final last year. Also, despite his name not being listed as owner, he said he has a bed and clothes in a home on Handforth Cove in Collierville.
Questions about Todd’s residency have been buzzing in Collierville. Once Todd got wind of the inquiries, he addressed them, saying he has always lived in the district.
“I’m back there at least three times a month (during the legislative session),” Todd said. “I come in on Friday (from Nashville). I stay (there) on the weekend and drive back up on Sunday.”
….On re-election papers filed with the Shelby County Election Commission, Todd listed 944 Handforth Cove as his address — a home shown on Shelby County Assessor’s records as owned by Ronald Spurlin. Town of Collierville utility records reflect the same information, and there is no reference to Todd having a connection to the house, which is for sale.
Efforts to reach Spurlin regarding Todd’s living arrangements led to a call from Todd, who identified Spurlin as a high school friend.
“I’ve been there probably awhile,” Todd said. “Ronnie told me to come on over and move in with (him). Nobody there, but him, so I did.
“I have a condo in Nashville I lease when I’m up here. The lease is up in June. I’m not trying to hide anything. Don’t have anything to hide.”
For years, Todd lived on Lancelot Circle with his former wife, Katherine. Their divorce was final last fall, and Todd quit-claimed the house to her.
