Levy County Sheriff Johnny Smith has asked that he be allowed to retire early on Dec. 31 and, in a letter to Gov. Rick Scott, asked that his successor, Sheriff-elect Bobby McCallum to permitted take office a week early.
Smith said on Nov. 28 that he has filed the paperwork asking to retire at the end of the year.
The two men, once bitter rivals for the office, have been meeting this week to ensure a smooth transition. "A lot has changed in the last few years," Smith said.
