Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Aumentar el salario mínimo federal: California ya introdujo un aumento en el salario mínimo estatal, y ahora debemos asegurarnos de que los empleos no se vayan a otros estados (21 de ellos) que aún se encuentran con el salario mínimo federal de $7.25
  • Empleos en infraestructura: necesitamos alejar el financiamiento federal de los proyectos extranjeros identificados como desperdicio, fraude o abuso y usar ese dinero aquí en nuestro distrito para proporcionar empleos que reconstruyan nuestra infraes
  • Reducción de la deuda estudiantil: el préstamo estudiantil promedio se encuentra en un 8 %; una reducción en la tasa de préstamo principal del 3.5 % garantizará que más estadounidenses busquen una educación superior y puedan pagarla.

American University, Escuela de Negocios Internacionales (actual)


Patrick Malloy was born in 1966 in Norwood, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston.  He comes from a family of educators; his parents, John and Patricia are retired school teachers.  He attended University of Massachusetts and American University in Washington, D.C. studying international business.

It was in D.C. that he had his first life-changing political experience.  Patrick was paying his way through college by working at the University Bakery Shop in northwest Washington, a business locally famous for its ice cream cakes.

One day a limousine pulled up and its occupant leaped out, rushing into the store and rudely cutting to the front of the line as he pushed the women behind him to the side.  I want an ice cream cake for Anne or Anna, I don't know.  Somebody will pick it up this afternoon," he bellowed.  Patrick firmly said: "It takes more than 8 hours to properly freeze an ice cream cake.  It can't be done by afternoon."  But I'm Congressman R... and I want that cake ready," he demanded  To which Patrick then calmly replied, "Well, I'm Student Malloy, and it still takes more than 8 hours to freeze an ice cream cake."  As the congressman stormed out, a woman in line said: "That's right, young man; you stick to your guns."

Malloy confronted the arrogance of power that day and promised himself to challenge the small-mindness and sense of entitlement of the powerful, whether in politics or business.  This commitment is one of the reasons he is running for Congress.

After college, Patrick went on to be a successful businessman in marketing in San Francisco and New York City.  During extensive travel in Australia and South Asia, he met the love of his life, Karuna, a young businesswoman from Bangladesh.  They married in 2007 and now live in Escondido.  Karuna followed the long path to become a naturalized US citizen   They are both so proud of America and its potential.

Today, Karuna works in the health care field, and Patrick developed a thriving business as a real estate specialist and realtor in the region.  Patrick knows the "lay of the land" as a realtor.  His knowledge of the 50th District includes understanding the strengths of each community and their unique needs.  He finds daily inspiration working with young families who want to buy homes, find fulfilling work, and create a good life in this part of the world.

But Malloy is still disturbed by the arrogance of power in Washington and specifically, the arrogance of our congressional incumbent.  He sees how this congressman's neglect affects the 50th District from the lack of better strategies to control wildfires in East County or the lack of traffic management on the I-15 in Temecula.  These are problems that national funds can alleviate.  US dollars wasted on infrastructure in Afghanistan could have been put to much better use right here.  He sees the neglect of our veterans; we made a promise to our vets and we need to keep it.  It's immoral and unpatriotic that veterans must wait months for health care or have difficulty finding jobs and affordable housing.

Malloy sees the arrogance of our incumbent using his campaign funds for personal uses and his mindless promotion of vaping in Congress.  Malloy has read the stories of our incumbent acting like a "party animal," as the employees in the Capitol have labeled him.  Malloy firmly believes this must end.  Democrats, Republicans, and Independents need to rise up together to rid the US Congress of this embarrassment.  The arogance of power needs to be confronted.  We can all agree with that woman in the D.C. bakery line over a quarter of a centry ago who said about Patrick: "That's right young man; you stick to your guns."

Vote Patrick Malloy for US Congress.


Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (4)

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why.
Respuesta de Patrick Malloy:

The current immigration policy is bewildering and needs an overhaul. A plan that is similar to Ronald Reagan's can  address undocumented immigrants currently living in this country. An enhanced system of green cards will allow more workers to legally enter this country and help to revitalize the economy. Laws are needed to protect immigrants from workplace violence and crimes. For those who enter the country with documentation, the process of becoming a citizen should be streamlined; though, civics tests and some knowledge of English can be maintained. 

The political climate in Washington, D.C. has been extremely partisan in recent years. In that kind of atmosphere, what would you do to get things done while in office?
Respuesta de Patrick Malloy:

I'm a negotiator and that's one of the reasons I am running for office. I'm willing to work hard to create win-win solutions in Congress. For example, all Members have an interest in meeting their district's needs. While fire abatement is a necessity in the San Diego region, development of tornado warning systems and shelters are major issues in the Midwest. Collaboration can work to meet the needs of each region. 

What, if anything, does the U.S. need to do in order to address national security and terrorism? Please explain your answer in detail.
Respuesta de Patrick Malloy:

Additional use of intelligence from satellites and drones can help the US develop and coordinate a national security policy to address terrorism. To the extent that US agents can infiltrate and understand terrorist groups, US resources can be used in targeted ways. Modernizing and safeguarding the US nuclear weapons system also ensures that these weapons can be used as a powerful deterrent. 

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?
Respuesta de Patrick Malloy:

Water scarcity is a fact of life in California. Water innovation such as public and private investment in water reclamation and desalination will help to alleviate local shortages. These practices have the ability to turn low value water into freshwater suitable for human use and consumption. Improved management of groundwater resources can protect this precious resource. Modernization of  the State Water Project can help ensure that less transported water is lost to evaporation.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

I am a Realtor by Trade, and it shapes my ability to negotiate a win win- a trait that is seriously lacking in todays 114th Congress. I seek to find the common middle ground that both sides can agree upon, and get that passed in Congress. My philosophy on representing the 50th district, is to look through the lens of how legislation either written by myself, or others, affect entrance into the middle class, or fortifying the middle class. I will not vote strictly on party lines, I will vote the issues as they affect my district. I would like to ensure that with a combination: Raise in the Federal Minimum wage to $15/hr and increased earned sick leave and One year of Free Vocational training and or Reduction of Student debt,  that low-income earners can get some real assistance and see a path to the middle class, that once was the backbone of our Country. My goal is on the Middle Class, getting in it and securing it.
