Those who need the highest achievable return on investment for government relations functions turn to Chris Arnold. Westchester Magazine calls him “one of New York’s top political communication specialists.”
He has authored over seventy state and local laws, led major government investigations and generated millions of dollars in earned media as a publicist. An expert in environmental and technology policy, he is trusted for his political acumen, erudition and effective deployment of resources, futures techniques, operationalizing programs and sensitive projects including administrative rulemaking procedure, lobbying, grassroots advocacy, messaging plans and outcomes. That is why he won fourteen major campaigns including three special elections in the last decade.
With more than a decade in public service, he also spent four years as director of public affairs in New York’s fourth largest city, worked as a program manager at the Campaign Finance Unit of the Westerchester County Board of Elections and for five years, served as a top staffer with two State Assembly members. Since 2011, he has served as Digital Director and later Executive Director for the Westchester Republican County Commitee yet maintains a record of bipartisanship, having been appointed to the Board of Directors of the Westchester County Soil & Water Conservation District by former County Executive Rob Astorino and reappointed by his succesor, County Executive George Latimer.
A decorated Iraqi war combat veteran and former journalist, he is also a member of the Cuban American National Foundation, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans and the American Legion. He resides in Shrub Oak with his wife, Rosemary and their daughter, Margaux.
