Hamilton College Alumni for Governance Reform, Inside Higher Ed, and Erin O’Connor are all reporting that the insurgent trustee candidates at Hamilton have lost. This is of course bad news, but it’s not necessarily the end of the line. The candidates faced extremely formidable obstacles in communicating their positions to the alumni who were voting, so they have a point that the 34-or-so percent of the vote they drew was really not all that bad. And there are other ways to, say, fight Hamilton’s ridiculous speech code than winning a trustee election. Anyone who wants to join the much-needed fight for liberty at Hamilton should contact FIRE.
