Abolish The State Legislature: Focus A Constitutional Convention On Addressing The Root Cause Of New York State’s Dysfunction

Attorney Richard Emery makes the argument for a constitutional convention based on scrapping the Assembly and Senate and replacing it with a House of Delegates:

“New Yorkers who’ve been failed over the decades by the politicians who claim to represent us finally have a way to cure our ills. This November, a vote in favor of a constitutional convention gives us the chance not just to reform the system around the edges, but to eliminate the state Legislature.

That’s right: abolish this cancer in Albany that blights our democracy by choosing its voters rather than we choosing our representatives; that wastes our taxes on profligate, duplicative government; that feeds its contributors at the expense of the poor, homeless and uneducated; and, too often, slimes itself in corruption.”
