Arnold is a political neophyte and part owner of John E. Ruth Co., a family run plumbing and heating business in Catonsville. He concedes in an email that he is “a definite outsider with NO political experience,” but says “new leadership in MD District 7 is necessary now.” He says that as a business owner he is a problem solver and that the district needs “a problem solver with the will to want to solve problems, not another politician with faux promises.” And he says he has a plan called “Seven for the Seventh,” that includes some solutions to the real problems facing the constituents of MD District 7.”
