A quibble here. At the time, Collector of the Port of New York was an extremely important (and lucrative) position. 75% of the revenues of the entire federal government were generated from this source, and Arthur was responsible for managing the activities of the several hundred employees engaged in collecting tax revenue. A far cry from being a community organizer.
