Attorney General’s Office Achieves New Milestone
October 8, 2015
ASH FLAT – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced that since launching the mobile office initiative in May, her office has achieved a new milestone by holding office hours in all 75 counties for the first time. Rutledge also announced times and locations for upcoming mobile offices in each congressional district.
Rutledge joined her team helping Arkansans at the mobile office in Ash Flat in Sharp County. Rutledge also stopped by the mobile office in Batesville, her hometown, earlier today.
“I launched mobile offices because you should not have to get on the Internet, pick up the phone or drive to an office building in Little Rock to meet with a member of my staff,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “I could not be more proud of the work my staff has done to assist Arkansans in all 75 counties. When I was a college student, I spent summers back home in Independence County flagging traffic for the Arkansas Highway Department. As a flagger, I quickly noticed that sometimes what the engineers in Little Rock sent to the crews on the highway did not always work the way Little Rock expected. That same type of disconnect sometimes occurs between elected officials in the State Capitol and Arkansans across the State, but through initiatives like mobile offices, I plan to stay connected with Arkansans.”
Rutledge created the mobile office initiative so that her office and staff would be accessible to everyone, not just those who call the capital city home.
Attorney General Mobile Offices assist consumers in filing consumer complaints and answer questions about the full range of services provided by the Attorney General’s Office.
