Early life, education and career

Maloney was born in Greensboro, North Carolina, the daughter of Christine Elizabeth and Ralph George Bosher. She attended Greensboro College. After graduating, she visited New York City in 1970, and decided to stay.

For several years, she worked as a teacher and an administrator for the New York City Board of Education. In 1977, she obtained a job working for the New York State Legislature, and held senior staff positions in both the State Assembly and the State Senate.

New York City Council

Maloney was elected to the New York City Council in 1982, defeating incumbent Robert Rodriguez in a heavily Spanish-speaking district based in East Harlem and parts of the South Bronx. She served as a Councilmember for 10 years.

 On the council, she served as the first Chair of the Committee on Contracts, investigating contracts issued by New York City in sludge and other areas. She authored legislation creating the city’s Vendex program, which established computerized systems tracking information on City contracts and vendors doing business with the City.

 Maloney also introduced the first measure in New York to recognize domestic partnerships, including those of same-sex couples. She was the first person to give birth while serving as a City Councilmember, and the first to offer a comprehensive package of legislation to make day care more available and affordable.

U.S. House of Representatives

Maloney ran for Congress in what was then the 14th district. She won by a very narrow margin. The district had previously been the 15th, represented by 15-year incumbent Bill Green, a progressive Republican.

She narrowly defeated him, taking 51 percent of the vote. The district, nicknamed the “silk stocking district,” had been one of the few districts in the city in which Republicans usually did well; in fact, they held the seat for all but eight of the 56 years between 1937 and Maloney’s victory. However, it had been made significantly friendlier to Democrats in redistricting.

The old 15th had been more or less coextensive with the Upper East Side, but the new 14th now included Long Island City, portions of the Upper West Side, and a sliver of Brooklyn. Maloney also benefited from Bill Clinton’s strong showing in the district.

Maloney married Clifton Maloney, a millionaire investment banker, in 1976. The couple had two daughters, Christina and Virginia.

Her husband, who ran the New York City Marathon 20 times, was believed to be, at the time, the oldest American ever to summit an “eight-thousander”, the world’s 14 mountains that surpass 8,000 meters in altitude.

He died on a climbing expedition on September 25, 2009, after descending over 4,000 feet from the summit of the world’s sixth-tallest peak, Cho Oyu in Tibet.

 Saying, “I’ve just climbed a beautiful peak,” these were apparently his last words as he went back to sleep and never woke up. Maloney is a member of The Junior League of the City of New York.
