Challengers Line Up to Run Against Sheriff Smith
Last week Don Smith announced his intentions to seek re-election as Putnam County Sheriff. The election will be Smith's first major political test. After defeating the unpopular four-term incumbent Robert Thoubboron in 2001, Smith ran unopposed in 2005. Now he faces two challengers for the GOP nomination and two other candidates running as Democrats.
