Republican candidate for Sheriff Jack Campbell is demanding an apology from opponent Wes Barr for comments Barr made during a joint appearance with Campbell Tuesday on 970 WMAY.
Barr accused Campbell of violating Merit Commission rules by keeping his job as Undersheriff while running for Sheriff. But Campbell says his actions have been reviewed repeatedly and found to be in compliance.
Campbell also notes that Barr said on the air that he would not pursue a complaint with the Merit Commission over Campbell’s actions. Campbell says that’s because Barr knows there’s no validity to the complaint.
