Debate: The Pros and Cons of a NYS Constitutional Convention
Sunday, November 5, 2017 - 2:00pm
Before election day, join Ethical as two experts debate the pros and cons of holding a state constitutional convention.
A vote on whether to hold a New York State constitutional convention happens every 20 years. We last voted on it in 1997 and we will be voting on it this Election Day, Tuesday, November 7th.
Many people are unaware of what it means, and its importance. This "debate" will give us all an opportunity to learn what is at stake so we can vote with a clear understanding of what our vote will mean.
Representing the pro side will be Suzannne Stassevitch from the League of Women Voters and representing the con side will be Michael Kink from Strong Economy for All Coalition.
