About Harold C. Maldonado

LET’S GET OUR COUNTY BACK!

Harold C. Maldonado was born in La Paz, Bolivia. He emigrated to the US from Bolivia with his family in the 1980s and has lived in Montgomery County ever since; first in Silver Spring and then in Gaithersburg, he is a husband, father, and a businessman. He attended Woodlin Elementary School, Sligo Middle School, and graduated from Albert Einstein High School with honors.

Harold is the first member of his family to go to college. He graduated from The Catholic University of America with a degree in Economics and continued his academic studies, obtaining a Master’s degree in Economic Development overseas.

“I always get asked why I chose economics as a field of study and the answer is simple. Growing up in Bolivia and then in Silver Spring, I saw a lot of poverty and a lot of disparity between poor and well-off people and I wanted to understand that reality behind this as I saw this disparity as unfair and unjust. No other field can answer that question better than economics.”- Harold C. Maldonado, May 2022

Harold has worked in the private and public sectors, obtaining valuable experience at the Federal Level carrying out economic analysis and informing US foreign economic policies for all three branches of federal government. He used his expertise to monitor the socio-economic stability of developing and emerging countries and saved millions of dollars from US taxpayers by finding ways these countries could implement sustainable economic policies and rely less on US assistance. He has also worked for non-governmental organizations in the US and abroad, where he was able to use his expertise to create and run economic development programs for the poor, centered on health, education, and economic inclusivity. As for the private sector, Harold has worked for various companies, including several in the financial sector, carrying out research and analysis on salient economic and financial issues.

During his work in economic development, Harold focused his attention on public economic policies to find bottlenecks in the investment environment that hinder local and domestic investment, which stifle and brake supply chains, foster unemployment, and increase poverty and crime.

Harold is an active community member in parent school organizations that have been very active in voicing their concerns about how the County Council has ignored their concerns and voices regarding its mask mandates and school curriculum. As an advent soccer player who has played at all levels, he’s active in the community, coaching youth soccer teams (boys and girls), instilling sportsmanship, healthy physical activity, good nutritional habits, and forming the next generation of healthy teenagers and positive members of society.

Finally, Harold is a family man who believes and supports in a tight community that spouses family values, personal freedoms, and patriotic values.

Montgomery County is a great place to live, work, and raise a family, Harold C. Maldonado will work tirelessly to solve the problems that undermine this reality and with your support, Harold will represent our District 7 in the County’s Council.
