Representative Sean Patrick Maloney currently represents New York’s 18th district in the U.S. House of Representatives and was first elected in November 2012.
Rep. Maloney currently serves on the House Agriculture Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which are both key contributors to the Hudson Valley economy and the creation of good-paying jobs. His priorities in Congress include strengthening the health and financial security of America’s retirees, creating jobs and economic opportunity for New York families, investing and improving our infrastructure, and keeping our communities safe.
He has a distinguished background in business and public service. He served as a senior advisor in President Bill Clinton’s White House as part of a team that balanced the budget and paid down the debt, all while creating over eight hundred thousand jobs here in New York.
When Sean left the White House, he built his own business from scratch. His high-tech startup created hundreds of New York jobs.
Sean then served as a senior staff member to two Democratic governors of New York, focusing on education and infrastructure projects. He oversaw 13 state agencies and departments, including those responsible for all homeland security, state police and emergency management operations.
