Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Leslie Purdy-Hoyt is this week’s Citizen of the Week. Purdy-Hoyt was nominated by Powell Hardware employee Tracey George, who said Purdy-Hoyt comes in often to purchase spray paint and a cleaner to clean or paint over graffiti in Eureka Springs. “Her motive is that Eureka is too beautiful of a town to have such ‘defacing or tagging’ ruin it,” George said. “She uses her own money, not to mention her time, to remove the defacing of many areas. She said she would have to wait until spring to take care of most stones.”
