Endorsement of Beth Storey Bryan for Circuit Judge, Division 5

The Northwest Arkansas Labor Council has endorsed Beth Storey Bryan for Circuit Judge, Division Five. She has an exemplary record of public service, the relevant legal experience best suited for the position, a strong work ethic, and the deep sense of fairness and accountability that working families expect and deserve from our judges.

We find Beth especially qualified for this position on the 4th Judicial District Circuit Court to serve Washington and Madison Counties, due to her record in handling domestic relations cases and probate litigation that are primarily heard in Division Five. Over the last decade, she has represented more than a thousand clients and appellate experience before the Arkansas Court of Appeals and the Arkansas Supreme Court. She has the real courtroom experience to effectively and fairly handle the dockets of the 5th Division.

Beth’s record of volunteer public service demonstrates that she has a passion for children and protecting their best interests. She serves as a board member for the Northwest Arkansas Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and is an active member of the Circle of Friends, a non-profit organization supporting the Arkansas Children’s Hospital. This service reflects her judicial philosophy that while courts have the obligation to hold everyone accountable under the law, they also have the duty to go the extra mile to protect our children.

We urge our members and all citizens to consider these outstanding qualification and to support Beth Storey Bryan for Circuit Judge. The election is on May 18th, and early voting begins on Monday, May 3rd.
