Arnold for Alder

Photo of Steve Arnold, Fitchburg Alder, District 4, Seat 7

Welcome to my campaign Web site! Here I explain my history, what I believe, and my vision for Fitchburg.

As a result of the election of April 2, 2013, I am serving my fifth two-year term on the Fitchburg Common Council, District 4, Seat 7. I received 795 votes to my challenger's 643 votes.

As a result of redistricting in August of 2011, my district has changed considerably. Swan Creek, Quarry Hill, Waterford Glen, and Tarpleywick Hills are now in the new district 3, while Seminole Forest, Lacy Heights, and Wildwood South are in the new district 4. I look forward to representing my new consituents, and will continue to value the relationships I have with those now in district 3!

My hopes and plans for Fitchburg are expressed in my platform letters, which I mail to all district households about a week before election day. You should have already received my 2013 platform letter. You may also read it here. If you'd like to see how I did on previous campaign promises, platform letters from my 2011, 2009, 2007, and 2005 campaigns are also here for your review.

Please feel free to send me your questions and suggestions.

Steve Arnold

I will work to make Fitchburg ever more beautiful, livable, and sustainable for all residents, now and in the future. I stand for:

  • Labor rights: resisting the race to the bottom
  • Financial responsibility: optimal service levels that consider benefits as well as costs
  • Sustainable land use: walkable urban neighborhoods and nearby parks, working lands, and nature
  • Health and safety: fast response to emergencies
  • Open government: campaign finance and decision-making in public view with public input

I admit to being a New Urbanist. NU principles motivate all my work in Fitchburg city government. For a three minute intruduction to NU, watch Built To Last. For more, read the Charter of the New Urbanism.
