In 2017 when City residents are electing a judge and two Council Members, they will also get a chance to vote on whether to hold a Constitutional Convention to revise the document that governs state function.
The last time the Convention was approved was 1967 and generally those with a stake in the status quo organize opposition.
That would be the public employee unions who don't want to upset the apple cart.
Such a convention would be populated with the political elites with lots of lawyers , so you and I would have little say.
