Levy County Sheriff Johnny Smith is not on the 2012 ballot seeking re-election, but that did not stop his rival in the 2008 election who is a candidate in the 2012 Republican primary from criticizing his performance.
Bobby McCallum, of Chiefland, one of two candidates for the Republican nomination for sheriff in the Aug. 14, 2012 primary, told the Chiefland Rotary Club Smith has been an "absentee sheriff" and Sheriff's Office employees have told him they are embarrassed to work there and he pledged to return the office's honor.
"The problems with the Sheriff's Office are lack of leadership, lack of accountability and lack of direction," McCallum said. He said the office has many good employees who want to serve the county.
