Todd Huff isn't the first Baltimore County councilman to be arrested for drunk driving, and if he's convicted of the crime, he won't be the first in that regard either. And we will not delude ourselves by expecting him to be the last to face such charges - at least not in a nation where 1.4 million people are arrested annually for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. But the circumstances of Mr. Huff's arrest are disappointing to say the least and raise serious questions about his judgment - not only in his choice to get behind the wheel of his county-owned vehicle after drinking enough at the Towson Elks Lodge to record a .20 on an alcohol breath test but in telling police after his arrest that he wanted to call "Jim Johnson," an obvious reference to the county's police chief.

With one day left for candidates to file for the 2014 election, four men had signed up as of Monday to challenge Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. The former chairman of the county Republican Party and the father of a dog-bite victim are among those who plan to run against Kamenetz, a Democrat. The primary election is set for June 24, with the general election in November. The filing deadline is 9 p.m. today. Towson resident Tony Solesky, a painting contractor, is running as an unaffiliated candidate, meaning he must collect about 3,700 signatures to get onto the ballot, he said.
