He is a licensed master electrician and has taught related subjects at Carroll Community College. He teaches for the Electric League of Maryland.

He is an electrician at The Washington Post, but would retire if he wins the election, he said.

Maloney is a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and has been president of the New Windsor Community Action Project for three terms.

He and his wife, Patricia Michel, have three children.
