Noble serves concurrently as the party's National Treasurer and State Secretary of the Socialist Party of New Jersey. As a second-term member of the Red Bank Regional High School Board of Education, he is also the only member of the Socialist Party currently holding elected office.

Career

Noble co-founded the Socialist Party's Central New Jersey local in March 2011 and served as its Chair for several years. He also served as Party Secretary for New Jersey from 2011 to 2015 before returning to the position in 2017.

Noble was the plaintiff in a 2013 lawsuit against New Jersey Secretary of State Kim Guadagno over the latter's refusal to allow voters in New Jersey to register their affiliation with the Socialist Party of New Jersey. The lawsuit was ultimately successful, with the State agreeing in March 2014 to grant voter registration abilities to the SPNJ.

He is an occasional writer for the Socialist Party's publication, The Socialist, and is a frequent critic of working within the Democratic Party. In a May 2017 article, entitled "Socialist in Principle and Strategy", he wrote "We cannot continue to tolerate failed strategies and watered-down politics in the name of Left unity. Socialism is a broad spectrum of ideas, and finding the platforms and campaigns that we can find common cause on is, in my opinion, what Left unity in its infancy will look like. The red line, so to speak, is that it must actually be socialist. Working with a party of capitalism is not socialist. It isn’t sectarian to be honest about that."
