In 2012, Matt began serving as the Director of the Saline Health Foundation and continues in that capacity today.
“For the past 25 years my focus has been people,” Brumley said, “learning how to assess the needs in our community and finding the resources to meet those needs. I will continue to work closely with the residents, business leaders and municipal leadership throughout Saline County as we overcome challenges, grow responsibly and continue to make Saline County the premier place to call home.”
Brumley has been involved in multiple community and civic organizations during his career. He served as President of the Benton Area Chamber of Commerce and Benton Bauxite Rotary Club.

“I am a conservative Christian leader with loyalty to Saline County,” he said. “I believe that we must remain fiscally responsible and never lose sight that we are working for the people of Saline County—and not the other way around. If given the opportunity to serve as Saline County Judge, I pledge to stay focused on what is most important to the people of this great county. I look forward to learning more about the people of Saline County and them learning more about my vision and values.”
