Sheriff Connie C. Smith, re-elected to her third term in November, was sworn in for another term at the Rappahannock County Sheriff’s Office last Tuesday (Dec. 29) by Circuit Court Clerk Peggy Ralph. “It’s a new year, a new term, and it’s still a great place to work,” Smith said earlier this week, noting that she re-appointed all of her staff this year. “Our crime rate [in the county] has dropped. We’re out, we’re proactive. I’m happy with my people, no reason to mess with a good thing.”
