Contents

Background

Mooney's mother was a Cuban refugee who escaped from political imprisonment shortly after the Bay of Pigs Invasion.[1] He currently represents Maryland's District 3, which covers parts of Washington and Frederick Counties.

When Mooney ran for the Senate in 1998, he defeated incumbent Republican John W. Derr in the primary election and Democrat Ronald S. Bird in the general election.[2] In 2002, Mooney won reelection, defeating Democratic challenger C. Sue Hecht, with almost 55 percent of the vote.[3] Mooney was again reelected in 2006, winning almost 52 percent of the vote against Candy Greenway.[4]

Education

Mooney graduated from Frederick High School[1] in Frederick, MD. There he was elected as Student Government Association President.[1] In 1993, he received his B.A. in philosophy from Dartmouth College.

Career

After college, Mooney served as Staff Assistant to U.S. Representative Roscoe G. Bartlett, remaining as his assistant until 1995. That year, he became a legislative analyst for the Republican Conference of the U.S. House of Representatives.[5]

In addition to his political work, Mooney also is a member of the Knights of Columbus. He also is the Executive Director of the National Journalism Center [2], a position he has held since 2005. In 2007 Mooney was elected to the Executive Committee of the Dartmouth College Association of Alumni. [6]

In the Maryland State Senate, Mooney is a member of the Judicial Proceedings Committee, the Joint Committee on Investigation, and formerly a member of the Joint Committee on Federal Relations, and the Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee. He serves on the Maryland Rural Caucus, the Taxpayers Protection Caucus, and the Maryland Veterans Caucus.

A 2008 article quoted Mooney as stating "I'd say Republicans believe in oversight." Mooney traveled to New Hampshire to testify in support of a state bill that would require legislative approval for amendments that the private Board of Trustees of Dartmouth College wished to make to its charter.[7]
