In the summer of 1998, President Gerald Ford told me that he would not comment on President Bill Clinton’s personal problems, saying only that he hoped ‘‘respect for the presidency would be restored soon.’’ A couple of weeks ago, George W. Bush also declined to speak about President Barack Obama, except to say that raising taxes on anyone right now would not be a good idea.

Thankfully, we are on the brink of a new day dawning in Gwinnett. We’ve been disgusted and embarrassed by the recent grand jury presentments, which revealed to us that our Board of Commissioners was in way over their heads. Some were also deep in the thick wavy-gravy ethics that voters should no longer allow. Self-serving acts by elected officials are not to be tolerated, ever.
