Leon County Commissioner Bill Proctor has some explaining to do, his colleagues say.

He was AWOL during Monday’s marathon budget workshop — a meeting in which commissioners made key decisions on how they’ll spend your tax dollars next year — and he also missed Tuesday night’s commission meeting.

Commission Chairman John Dailey said he was told Tuesday by Proctor’s aide that the District 1 commissioner was traveling at the time. Commissioner Bryan Desloge said Proctor, who was back in his office Thursday, told him he missed the meetings because he was "stuck in Atlanta."

Proctor didn’t return phone calls or an email from the Democrat.

Desloge said he’s upset Proctor missed the meetings.

"His job is to represent his district, and if he doesn’t attend the meetings, it negates any ability for him to function effectively as a commissioner," Desloge said.

Desloge said Proctor is bright and capable, but "he’s never taken this very seriously. To him, it’s a bit of a game. He could do so much if he’d take this a little more seriously."

Dailey said the commission sans Proctor "worked very well together." He said he’s been too busy with the budget to worry much about Proctor’s whereabouts.

"We are all adults," Dailey said. "I’m taking care of my business for the citizens of District 3 in Leon County. Commissioner Proctor needs to explain his absenteeism to his constituents."

Commissioner Nick Maddox said he can’t speak to Proctor’s philosophy when it comes to meeting attendance.

"I take any meeting, and especially budget workshops, very seriously," Maddox said. "And I think it’s one of the most important things — if not the most important thing — that we do as commissioners. So I make it a priority to be at each and every one of them."

Commissioner Kristin Dozier said the final budget workshop is arguably the most important commission meeting of the year.

"It is crucial for us to be there and be engaged in the process," Dozier said.

Commissioners say they’ve received emails recently from voters calling for Proctor to be removed from office or sanctioned somehow by his colleagues.

The IRS is taking money out of Proctor’s county paycheck each month until it collects nearly ,000 in unpaid income taxes. Proctor also owes more than ,000 to the Florida Elections Commission in fines from his 1998 campaign.
