J.H. Snider discusses the upcoming 2017 ballot question whether New York should call for a state constitutional convention.
In the Gotham Gazette, the author writes about “whether to convene a state constitutional convention. The time has come to begin preparing for the next referendum on Nov. 7, 2017, at which time voters will decide whether there is a convention the following April after the next general election. Steps must begin to be taken now so that New Yorkers are ready to make an informed decision.”
