Charlie Arnold has had a passion for community service since his days as an Eagle Scout at Prescott's St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
A fourth generation Arizonan, Arnold's affinity for the area runs deep. Following his college years, he had numerous career opportunities in larger metropolitan areas, but he had a calling to return to Prescott and continue the family tradition of giving back to the community.
At the age of 25, Arnold became the youngest Chamber of Commerce president in the history of Arizona when he assumed that post in Chino Valley Area. He has also been an active participant and board member with organizations like the Central Arizona Partnership, Yavapai County Contractor’s Association, Prescott Area Coalition for Tourism, Prescott Area Leadership, American Legion, Boy Scouts of America, and many others. In 2010, Arnold was honored by the Prescott Young Professionals with the coveted 2010 Visionary Award.
As a member of the Prescott city council, Arnold's top priority is to ensure continued support for the police, fire, and public works departments. He believes these core services are fundamental to ensuring every citizen’s basic right to health, safety, and quality of life.
Arnold graduated from Prescott High School in 2003 and continued his education at Yavapai College and the University of Arizona, developing a foundation for his specialties in regional planning and economic development.
In his professional life, Arnold owns Southwest Development Consultants and Northern Arizona Tree Service and operates enterprises in real estate, concert planning, and business consulting.
