Alan Chartock’s The Capitol Connection: Constitutional Convention A Chance For Real Change

Alan Chartock supports the constitutional convention proposal, arguing that  New Yorkers “have lost faith and that’s when democracy goes south. Incredible numbers of people don’t know who their legislators are. They tell their children, “They’re all a bunch of crooks.” As a result, the people have no real way of holding their legislators accountable. Most of these elected officials can’t be voted out of office because of the money that self-serving people and special interest groups invest in their campaigns. It’s been documented over and over again. So, do we give up?”
