HEBER SPRINGS – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office will hold three educational events in Cleburne County onThursday, Sept. 8.
“In 2015 my staff assisted constituents in all 75 counties with the mobile office initiative,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “This year, I am expanding our community outreach programs to bring even more educational opportunities to constituents, in their neighborhoods. I want all Arkansans to know that the Attorney General’s office is accessible to them, without having to drive to downtown Little Rock.”
