Committee assignments


In the 2010-2011 legislative session, Madden has been appointed to these committees:


Campaign themes

In an interview with the Gloucester County Times, Madden listed his top priorities:

  • "We must continue to get our state’s fiscal house in order, cutting wasteful spending and reducing taxes on the middle class and businesses where we can. This will allow us to ensure that essential programs can continue, while not overburdening taxpayers further. We must also continue our efforts to create jobs and attract and retain businesses to our state. With our unemployment rate still mirroring the national average, now is the time for us to take aggressive action on targeting tax cuts for small businesses in the high-tech and health care sectors, and promoting investment in start-up companies. Finally, we must focus on improving health care for all residents. Over my tenure in the Senate I have been proud to support the work of organizations raising awareness of epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, and worked on legislation to provide cardiac screenings for our student athletes." [4]
