Redistricting and retirement

With Redistricting moving his residence out of the 30th District, Malone was forced to run for re-election to the 7th District in 2011. Since Malone brought with him the status of a nine-term incumbent, NJ Spotlight identified the 7th District as a potential place for the GOP to pickup a seat in the Assembly.[4] However, following the primary election, Malone announced that he had decided not to run for re-election, but denied that redistricting had motivated his retirement. He will serve the remainder of his term.[5]


Malone successfully won re-election in the November 3, 2009 general election. He was bracketed with Ronald Dancer and defeated Democratic challengers John Kocubinski and William Spedding.[6] [7]

Assemblyman Malone discusses governor's economic plan

Malone's answers to the New Jersey State Legislative Election 2005 National Political Awareness Test are available. When asked his top priorities he said, "Property tax relief is the top issue of concern. Second is fair and adequate funding of schools. Third is the ethical misconduct of elected officials. The funding of these issues must start with weeding out the hundreds of millions of dollars in waste, fraud and mismanagement. We also must revisit the Abbott funding formula and eligibility criteria."[8]
