A lifetime of experience has taught Sean how to do what the Tea Party won’t – grow our economy, create jobs, protect Social Security, and strengthen the middle class.
The youngest of six, Sean Patrick Maloney grew up in a middle-class Irish-Catholic family. Sean’s father, a disabled veteran, and his mother started a small business and managed to put Sean and his brothers through college. Sean later served as a senior advisor to President Bill Clinton as part of the team that balanced the budget, paid down the debt, and created more than 800,000 jobs here in New York. When Sean left the White House, he built his own business from scratch. His company created hundreds of well-paying, New York jobs. He then served as a senior adviser to two New York governors, focusing on education and infrastructure.
Sean was elected to represent the Hudson Valley in 2012, defeating Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth. Sean quickly built a reputation for working across the aisle to get results for the Hudson Valley, keeping businesses open and people in their homes, hiring more cops and firefighters, and securing millions in overdue compensation for veterans and their families. As a Member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, he has supported smart investments in infrastructure, which grow our economy; create an immediate boom of construction jobs; and rebuild American roads, bridges and mass transit systems.
Sean and his husband, Randy Florke, have three children together: Jesus, Daley, and Essie. He currently resides in Cold Spring, New York.
