Allegheny County Council isn't quite the Democrat monopoly that Pittsburgh City Council is — but it's close. Time to remove the rubber stamps and beef up the Republican ranks:

• District 1: Tom Baker of Ross, chief community affairs officer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh, is the kind of limited-government candidate in short supply on too many councils.

• District 3: Ed Kress of Shaler, a lawyer, twice has been appointed to the council to fill vacancies; it's time he be sent there by the voters.

• District 8: Dave Majernik of Plum, a retired software engineer, will breathe new life into a district ossified by the same dinosaur Democrat for 13 years.

• District 9: Kenneth Peoples of White Oak, an EMT and real estate agent, holds the audacious view that the county spends too much. Audacious, that is, only to the incumbent spendthrift.
