PATRICK ARNOLD CAMPAIGN PICKS UP EARLY ENDORSEMENTSManchester, NH – Today Alderman Patrick Arnold released an initial list of local community leaders who have publicly endorsed his candidacy for mayor of Manchester.

“I’m very proud that these influential leaders have chosen to support my campaign for mayor,” said Arnold. “They believe, as I do, that the city of Manchester’s most prosperous days are ahead, and that we don’t have to settle for mediocrity. Our campaign is all about a new vision for moving this city forward, and we’re building a team of supporters who share that vision.”
Alderman Arnold said he was encouraged to find city residents already engaged and energized. “The state of our city is really causing people around the community to take notice,” he said. “Some might think February is a little early to start campaigning for an election in November, but our supporters agree that the stakes are just too high for us to sit on our hands. The folks I talk to every day tell me they see nothing but bluster, stale ideas, and a ‘my way or the highway’ approach from Mayor Gatsas, and they think it’s time for a change at City Hall.”
Alderman Patrick Arnold is a practicing attorney at Backus, Meyer & Branch LLP in Manchester and a graduate of the University of New Hampshire School of Law.
