Debbi Purifoy submitted paperwork this morning to run for mayor of Bauxite. Eddie Jones filed paperwork for the mayor's race earlier in the filing period. Current mayor Johnny McMahan has not filed as of August 5. The filing period continues through noon on August 15.
When asked for her reason for jumping into the race, Purifoy said "I've heard Johnny and Eddie were running again. I can't sit back and do nothing. I promise not to steal city funds and I will not call anyone an ugly name."
