2022 MARION COUNTY

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

*Denotes incumbent


JA​SON STUMPH

Candidate for County Judge

My name is Jason Stumph and I am running for Marion County Judge. Above all else know that I love the Lord, am in love with my wife, love my family and I am a Conservative Republican. If you know these things about me, then you know Jason Stumph. The Lord and my family provide the solid ground that I walk on daily and both give me the strength and courage needed to help shape this great County.


As a Deputy Sheriff of Marion County, I've been blessed with the opportunity to provide a public service and build relationships with our great citizens. I look forward to eliminating the division and helping unite the multiple departments of this County. The majority of my professional career has been in public service and I will bring knowledge, experience, and my love for this community to the Judge's position. Marion County is where I raise my family, have my career, and plan to retire, so please help me succeed in strengthening the County for years to come. I can't do it alone, and do not have the desire to do it alone...we are a team...We are Better Together.

Sincerely,

Jason Stumph

NWAEDD and OMSWD:

As an active member of the Northwest Arkansas Economic Development District (NWAEDD) I have secured grants that have promoted growth and security within the county.

To date these grants total over $4 million dollars that have increased the county’s efficiency with the following:

• Computers for 14 police vehicles which will increase officer safety.

• Small equipment to promote law enforcement officer safety and efficiency including flashlights and vehicle jump boxes.

• Tanks for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBAs) for the Oakland Promise Land Fire Protection District.

• Updated and additional shelving in the library.

• Additional grants involved FEMA, CoronaVirus Relief, American Rescue Plan, Semahtronix, Vexus, and the Marion County Senior Center.

As a board member of the Ozark Mountain Solid Waste District (OMSWD) I fought diligently for the reimbursement of illegal fees applied directly to your property taxes and led the successful effort to reduce wasteful spending of taxpayer money on unnecessary administrative expenses.


UPDATES TO COUNTY PROPERTIES:

• Courthouse - Repair of roof, new furniture for jury, court, and employee use, new generator, and flooring in treasurer's office.

• Health Department – currently working on adding awning cover that will better allow the public to travel in and out of the building inclement weather conditions.

• Established a work order system to assist in maintenance of grounds and assist employees.


CREATING AND MAINTAINING TRANSPARENCY:

• Live Streamed public meetings to keep the public informed.

• Minimized the use of “court orders” opting for “ordinances” which allows for more discussion at public meetings.

• Quorum Court minutes, agenda, and county budgets are available on the county website for public view.


I, John Massey, am seeking re-election to serve a second term as Marion County Judge.


I have been a resident of Marion County since 1995. I have been married to Marsha Flippin Massey for 31 years and have 3 daughters, a son, and 6 grandkids.


In addition to my 30 year career as a lineman at Entergy, I owned and operated C and C Backhoe and Dozer here in Marion County. My crews specialized in installing underground power utilities for many construction projects including Arkansas State University Mountain Home, Webb’s Landing, and Big Creek Country Club.


Throughout my first term as Marion County Judge I have worked to maintain transparency and promote accountability county-wide. By sticking to my morals and working closely with other elected officials who were committed to standing up for what is right, I believe that I have brought forth the positive change that I promised including transparency, accountability, a detention facility with more funding, a sheriff’s office that is better equipped, a road department with more equity, and a unified team of public servants that work for the citizens of Marion County.


I would greatly appreciate your support as I seek re-election to serve as Marion County Judge.

Candidate for County Sheriff

TRADING ONE BADGE FOR ANOTHER

DUSTIN EARL BEALS

Candidate for County Sheriff

Hello, my name is Dustin Beals, and I'd like to tell you about myself and explain why I am a strong candidate for your next Sheriff of Marion County. A 1991 graduate of Yellville-Summit, I joined the United States Marine Corps- where I spent four of the most memorable years of my life. Life and family had me moving around until I finally settled back in Yellville in the summer of 2004. I was hired as a part-time jailer/dispatcher at the Marion County Sheriff's Department in the summer of 2006 and offered a full-time position the following week after my training and working my first weekend of scheduled shifts. I was offered a Patrol Deputy position in April of 2007- which I accepted without hesitation. In January of 2007, I entered the Arkansas Law Enforcement Academy in Camden, AR. I remained on patrol until I received a promotion to Patrol Sergeant in January of 2014. In September of 2017, I took a lateral move into Criminal Investigation as an investigator. During my time with the Sheriff's Department, I took as many classes as I could- becoming a firearm and taser instructor, and an instructor who can teach most classes pertaining to law enforcement.


Law enforcement is a career where laws constantly change, making for an environment where you always learn new and exciting things. As sheriff, it is imperative to continue to grow in knowledge and application, making it both rewarding and helpful to the community I serve. Law enforcement is not just a job: it is a calling and something I can't see myself not doing. I believe the position of elected sheriff is not to be looked at as a hobby or side job: it is a position that demands making both our people and county the number one priority. As your sheriff, I pledge to work hard, listen to the citizens, and stand by the employees of the Marion County Sheriff's Office. I want to make and keep Marion County a great place that we all call home. I hope you will allow me to prove that I am both knowledgeable and capable of being your next Sheriff. Let's make Marion County Great again together.

Candidate for County Assessor

Unopposed.

ANGELA GOODMAN

Candidate for County Collector

Angela Goodman has been employed as a Deputy Clerk in the Tax Collector’s office since 2016. Goodman states, “I have learned so much during this exciting time. Now I think it is time to make a move to the position of Tax Collector.”


Goodman moved to this area twenty-seven years ago with her two young children, looking for a better place to raise her family. She says, “I most certainly found just such a place right here in Marion County. This has been such a wonderful area for my family and me to live and work. I am so proud to be a part of such a fine community of people.”


Goodman states she has always felt that she would one day advance her career within the Collector’s Office. When the most recent County Collector made her intentions known a few years ago that she would not be seeking reelection, Goodman began planning to run for office. Because of Angie Goodman’s extensive experience in the workings of the Collector’s Office, she believes she is the best person to fill the position of Tax Collector. Goodman states, “I believe I have a vision for improvements that can be made to better serve all the people of Marion County. I plan for the Tax Collector’s office to be fully transparent in its operations, as well as find solutions to some long-time issues. I look forward to adding online payments to our website to increase anytime access for our community as well.”


Goodman loves meeting the taxpayers and helping them every day. She always appreciates a challenge and enjoys finding ways for the county to not only save money but also maintain a consistent revenue stream.


“I believe I am the right person to serve as Marion County Tax Collector. I have the experience and confidence to face each new day with a clear vision of what needs to get done.”


Experience is my most valuable asset.

Integrity is my moral ground.

Change is what I embrace for our best future.


“I look forward to visiting with you during your next visit to the Collectors office, or perhaps on the street or in the grocery store. I am part of your community every day.”

CARLA PURDOME

Candidate for County Collector

Carla is a transfer to Marion County. Carla and her husband John moved here from Phoenix,Arizona back in 2003, making Yellville their forever home. John and Carla have been married 32 years and have four children, thirteen grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. Building strong relationships with family and friends ranks high on Carla’s priority list and is something that she also has carried with her into her professional career. Carla truly cares for her coworkers and the citizens of Marion County.


I first began working at the courthouse here in Marion County in 2004. I have been lucky enough to advance my knowledge of county operations by working in the assessor’s office, the collector’s office, and now hold the position of the county treasurer, so I understand the personal and real estate tax process in its entirety. I am thankful to have so much experience working for our wonderful county and its great residents. I have 36 years of accounting experience which will be a great asset in assisting the citizens of Marion County as I hope to continue working for the people as the collector if elected.


Cathy Brightwell left a wonderful foundation to build upon in the collector’s office. There is one thing that I would love to change, like making paying taxes as quick and easy as possible and I would love to offer online payments. I know a lot of folks have asked for it in years past and I want to make that an option for them. I am currently serving as Marion County Treasurer. I was appointed to fill the position vacated by the retirement of Ron McPherson. I have served as the Treasurer two years.

SUSANN CRESPINO

Candidate for County Treasurer

Crespino was named County Comptroller in March 2021 after serving as Marion County’s Payroll Clerk and Human Resources Administrator since January 2003. She maintains the general ledger, oversees payroll and accounts payable, and researches and reports to the County Judge and Quorum Court on budgeting for all county offices and funds. She previously served as the County Judge’s Administrative Assistant, Road Department Accounts Manager, and seasonal Deputy Collector.


“I’ve worked with all county employees, elected officials, attorneys, boards, committees, legislative auditors, and state and federal agencies for 19 years now,” Crespino states, “and I am very familiar with County financial operations and record-keeping requirements from the budget and expenditures side of things. It’s time to more thoroughly work the revenue side of County business and I am excited for the opportunity to serve as your Treasurer.”


Crespino holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and currently serves on the School of New Hope’s board of directors. She is a member of both the Marion County Republican Committee and Republican Women of Marion County. She and husband Don have operated local businesses in real estate and computer services since moving to Marion County in 1991. They have three children, Jeremy, Michael and Mariah, all 13-year graduates of Yellville-Summit School.


“Don and I are proud to call Marion County our home, and we are grateful to have raised our children here with the acceptance and support of the entire community. We chose to be here and can’t imagine living in a better place or doing life with better people. I hope to continue “giving back” a small part of all we’ve enjoyed here by serving you as your next Treasurer. I would very much appreciate your support and vote of confidence in the upcoming election.”

“Service Above Self describes Tony Todaro. A man who will put Marion County first! What more can we ask of a public servant?"


Choosing someone with years and years of experience in the Courthouse is not necessarily a good thing, especially if you want someone who will come in to make changes. At every point in his career, Tony has taken on challenges and made a difference. Now he wants to take that expertise and use it to serve his fellow Marion County Residents. He will always ask: Are we following Best Practices? How can we improve what we do for the good of the taxpayers of our county because, It’s Your Money!
