Biography of Charles Malone from Malone4Congress
Charles Malone understands the concerns of the residents of North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District. Charles’ mother and father, (Mildred Winborne Malone and E.T. “Taylor” Malone) met and courted during World War II in the Eastern North Carolina city of Wilson. His father was a Lieutenant in World War II and fought in the South Pacific. After the war, he was a probation officer in Harnett County.
A life-long Tar Heel born in Raleigh, Charles grew up in Harnett County where he picked tobacco and worked in mills as a young boy and teenager. Long hot days in the field and factory taught Charles to value hard work and family!
Like all parents, Charles’ mother and father wanted a better future for their children. They stressed the importance of performing well in school, and they encouraged their children to attend college. After high school, Charles received a good Baptist education from Campbell University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Government. His interest in public service propelled him to work as a staff member in the Office of US Senator Sam J. Ervin, Jr., and to become a campaign aide to US Senator Robert Morgan.
Charles’ committment to public service involves more than politics and government. He served our country honorably during Vietnam (90th Military Police Detachment) learning the sacrifices that military families face each day.
After service to our nation, Charles returned to North Carolina and managed a small business. Charles knows the difficulty business owners face in trying to meet a payroll. He learned first hand how government policy can have both a positive and negative impact on individuals and businesses. On the campaign trail, Charles often states, “I know what government can do for people, but I also understand what government can do to people when it becomes too powerful!”
Charles has worked for the past twenty years as a human resources professional with the State of North Carolina (the last 13 years with the NC Department of Environment & Natural Resources).
Charles has been married for 38 years to Donna Hamilton Malone, and they are the proud parents of one son, David, 28. Charles and Donna are members of Church of the Nativity Episcopal Church.
Biography of Charles Malone from Facebook
For those seeking information about my campaign for the Democratic nomination to Congress, 13th House District. I deeply regret to say I have withdrawn from the race due to health reasons. My name will remain on the ballot and, if I still win the primary, the 13th District Committee will select my replacement.
If I could have continued in the Congressional race, I would be advocating policies that are traditional for Democrats: advancing the cause for a healthy economy that builds jobs, social justice, environmental security, military strength and broader and affordable health care coverage. And in all these things, it is paramount to have a new dialogue with our political opponents to ensure the greatest possibility for shared responsibility in our public work and for cooperation in the wise governance of our country. The people deserve no less.
I was born in Raleigh, but raised in Harnett County (hometown of Coats). My dad, E. T. “Ted” Malone, was a probation officer and ran an apartment house on Wrightsville Beach during the summers, while my mother, Mildred Winborne Malone, was the county truency officer. While growing up in Coats in the 1950s and 1960s we mostly played neighborhood sports and our teenage jobs were working in tobacco, or cotton. I had a neat job of cleaning the doctor’s office each night, but I worked in the Erwin Cotton Mill one summer, and then was a busboy at the Neptune Restaurant on Wrightsivlle Beach one summer. My dad died when I was almost 13, so I always had to work to have an extras. It made me resourceful, I believe, and willing to do what ever it takes to survive. I graduated from Campbell University, attended NCSU grad school in public administration. Married to Donna Hamilton Malone since 1974, have one son, David, 26. Intern in Office of US Senator Sam Ervin, Jr., on campaign staff of US Sen. Robert Morgan. Vietnam veteran. Former small business manager, journalist, and since 1993 in state government in NC in human resources area.
