WDT: New York to decide whether to revise state constitution

   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.

As long as so many love their party more than they love their children, there won't be much home here in Benito's state. Every special interest from teachers to helpless little victims at Potsdam vote golf course. That won't change.
