I created a dataobject like this:

class StaffMember extends DataObject
    //db fields
    static $db = array (
        'Name' => 'Varchar(255)',
        'Role' => 'Varchar(100)',
        'Description' => 'Text'

now like create a page which can use a dropdown field and filter/query only e.g. Roles like "Manager".
In this dropdown field should all Roles available and only that chosen Members with the Role should be displayed.

I know that is simple but I can't find a solution, so thank you for your help.
