As a candidate for Baltimore County executive, Kevin Kamenetz pledged to be innovative and not simply carry on the traditions of the past. While the first day in office may be a bit too early to pass judgment on his labors, the senior advisors he's named so far will be neither new to county government nor represent an embrace of diversity. Late last week, Mr. Kamenetz announced that Fred Homan would be retained as the county's administrative officer and Don I. Mohler III, who handled communications for former county executive James T. Smith Jr., would serve as his chief of staff.

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.
