Pittsburgh enters year 10 of state receivership in 2014. Its pensions continue to be woefully underfunded. Structural budget deficits can't be licked. The same old Democrat City Council monopoly just won't do anymore. We endorse three quite credible options in Tuesday's election:

• District 4: Samuel Hurst, a Republican cab driver, believes in limited government, something City Council Democrats can't comprehend.

• District 7: Libertarian Dave Powell, a Pitt systems administrator, should succeed Patrick Dowd, who vacated the seat last summer, in a special election. Mr. Powell should have a field day with his commonsense points of order.

• District 8: Republican Mordecai Treblow is another commonsense choice to fill the seat being vacated by presumptive mayor Bill Peduto. Mr. Treblow understands that cutting taxes will lead to more economic development and more tax receipts.
