Massanelli to be U.S. marshal

Posted By on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 4:22 PM

Chip Massanelli, currently chief deputy in the U.S. marshal's office in Little Rock, will be nominated by President Obama to be marshal, a political appointment. Sens. Pryor and Lincoln announced the choice.


U.S. Senators Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor are proud to announce that Clifton “Chip” Massanelli will be nominated by President Obama for U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Arkansas. Chip Massanelli is currently the Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal in the Eastern District of Arkansas, a position he has held since 2006. He currently lives in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
In May, Senators Lincoln and Pryor sent letters to President Obama recommending candidates for two of Arkansas’s vacant U.S. Marshal positions.
“I was impressed by Mr. Massanelli’s qualifications and experience for this position,” Lincoln said. “I have confidence he will serve the people of Arkansas ably, as he has throughout his years with the U.S. Marshal Service for the Eastern District of Arkansas. I thank Mr. Massanelli for the years of courageous service he has already dedicated to the people of Arkansas.”
“With nearly three decades of law enforcement experience, there is no doubt in my mind that Clifton “Chip” Massanelli has the skills, commitment and integrity to lead the US Marshal’s office for the Eastern District of Arkansas,” Pryor said.  “I look forward to introducing him to my Senate colleagues and to a swift confirmation process.”
Background on Chip Massanelli:
Chip Massanelli is the Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal in the Eastern District of Arkansas, a position he has held since 2006.  He has risen through the ranks in the Eastern District since joining the U.S. Marshals Service as a Deputy U.S. Marshal in 1983.  Previously, Massanelli served the Pine Bluff Police Department as a Patrolman from 1981 to 1982 and as a Detective  from 1982 to 1983.  In addition to his professional law enforcement training, Massanelli is the recipient of a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 1980.
