WASHINGTON - Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney was officially sworn in as a Member of the 113th Congress today and is busy getting to work for the constituents of New York’s 18th Congressional District. Today, he began pressing for immediate action on a disaster relief bill for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Maloney has been named to the powerful Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and will also work closely with Congressman Hoyer as an Assistant Whip in the 113th Congress.
“It is a tremendous honor to serve all the hardworking families in the Hudson Valley. New York faces serious challenges and I am eager to start fighting for the priorities of families and small businesses in the 18th Congressional District,” said Congressman Maloney. “Whether its passing essential disaster aid, creating jobs or modernizing our highways, I am prepared and excited to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get results for our district.”
"Rep. Maloney brings a fresh perspective to the table as a new Member of Congress, and I am confident that he will be a strong addition to the Whip team," said Congressman Steny Hoyer. "I look forward to working with him to advance Democrats’ agenda of job creation and building a strong middle class.”
Maloney will be joined at the ceremonial swearing-in ceremony by his partner, Randy Florke, and his three children: Jesus, Daley, and Essie.
New York’s 18th Congressional District includes six towns in Northeastern Westchester, all of Putnam and Orange counties and the southwestern part of Dutchess County.
