I think it would be fun if the player could run for Mayor since its the player that fixes everything in the town by themselves. The Bus, the Community Center and filling up the Museum is all thanks to the player. Every one is seemingly trapped in the town because the bus is not working and the taxes are used to pay for the museum which has been robbed and Lewis has done nothing to fix it. The Community Center is forgotten and dilapidated probably because there is not enough people and money to run it. The only income the town gets is from The Stardew Valley Fair and you the Player who is generating money by exporting their crops. There are no pavements either and not many lights in the streets which I've found can be fixed by the Player placing ones they have crafted in the town themselves. It could be done like the Heart events except now the player is trying to win the hearts of the town. Voting posters could pop up in the town and a little event could happen to help get the town to vote for you. If you are successful in your choices during the events then it adds points towards the town's heart meter, if you are not it goes towards Lewis. Of course there will be a few Villagers who will be biased and may vote for Lewis because of relations with them but then the player has to work extra hard to win their favour during the heart events. Maybe the player can put up the posters themselves and even get help from their spouse or villagers they have made friends with. If they have a good relationship with Haley, they could get her to take photos for the campaign. If Elliott, what it says on the posters, maybe even speeches ect. Then if the Player wins they can decide how to improve the town and what to turn the JoJa building into if they have fixed the Community Center. They have a count of the towns income and outgoings and can edit the town, like adding lights and fixtures to the town. Which will also count towards them voting for you in the next run. I think the Run should be every two years perhaps? This gives the players time to run the farm and keep an eye on the town. This should only happen during the 3rd year and the player can decide if they want to run for mayor or not or maybe even elect another villager to become mayor and help that villager get votes. What do you think?
