Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s mobile office is coming to Newton County today. The office will be at the Newton County Senior Activity and Wellness Center, located at 100 East Clark Street in Jasper, this morning from 10 until 11:30.
Rutledge created the mobile office initiative during her first year in office to make the office accessible to everyone, particularly those who live outside of the capital city. Office hours were held in all 75 counties in each year during her first term, serving over 3,300 Arkansans. In 2019, the offices have already served over 2,000 Arkansans.
The AG mobile office assists constituents with consumer related issues by filing consumer complaints against scam artists, as well as answering questions about the office and the other services offered to constituents.
Rutledge is also continuing her partnerships with the Cooperative Extension Service and local law enforcement throughout Arkansas. Law officials will be available to collect unused and expired prescription medications to ensure they’re secured and properly disposed.
