WASHINGTON, DC- On Friday, President Joe Biden announced his intent to nominate former Hudson Valley Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney as the U.S. representative to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Maloney will hold the rank of Ambassador.
According to the U.S. Department of State, OECD is a forum where the governments of 37 democracies with market-based economies collaborate to develop policy standards to promote sustainable economic growth.
Maloney, a Democrat, represented the former 18th Congressional District in the Hudson Valley, which included the cities of Middletown, Newburgh, Beacon, and Poughkeepsie from 2013 to 2023.
Congressional redistricting resulted in Maloney choosing to run in the 17th Congressional District in 2022, where he narrowly lost reelection to Republican Mike Lawler.
