Joseph R. Malone (born October 1, 1949) is an American Republican Party politician who served in the New Jersey General Assembly from 1993 until 2012, representing the 30th legislative district.


Malone received a B.S. from Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey) and was awarded an M.Ed. from Trenton State College in Industrial Education.[1] He was born in Trenton, and currently resides in Bordentown.[2]

Malone has served on the Bordentown Sewerage Authority since 1986. He was the Bordentown City Director of Public Works from 1973-1997. Malone served as Deputy Mayor of Bordentown from 1993-1997 and was its Mayor from 1973-1993. Malone has served as the director of post-secondary and adult education and apprentice coordinator at Somerset County Technical Institute in Bridgewater.[1]

Malone was selected by the Republican district committee to fill the remainder of Robert Singer's unexpired 1992-93 term in the General Assembly after Singer resigned his seat to fill a State Senate vacancy created when John E. Dimon did not run for re-election.[3] Malone was the Assembly's Budget Officer from 2004 to January 2011, and was the Assistant Majority Whip from 2000-2001. He served in the Assembly on the Budget Committee, Education Committee, Higher Education Committee, Joint Budget Oversight Committee and the Joint Legislative Committee on Government Consolidation and Shared Services.[1]

On June 12, 2011, Malone announced he would not seek reelection in the November 2011 elections after 18 years in the Assembly, but noted that "I want to stay involved in public service, and we'll see how that plays out in a couple years."[4] He was succeeded by Sean T. Kean, who had previously served in the State Senate representing the 12th legislative district prior to redistricting.[5]
