in Hamilton as we know incumbants are really hard to dislodge from office given relatively low interest in local politics by many hamiltonians. - moving foward?

Good post moving forward!

I just want to point out that when political interest is low is exactly when change can be made. Lack of political interest should be viewed as an opportunity for the grassroots, not an obstacle. It signals there may be people who are effectively disenfranchised and feel that the current batch of representatives don't speak to or for them.

Also, the fewer people that vote, the fewer people it requires to make change happen.
