We have stop fantasizing that the NYS legislators have the best interests of the people in mind, or will ever fix our broken government themselves. This year we can bypass the NYS Legislature; because this Nov 2017 the people of NYS get to vote on whether to hold a NY State Constitutional Convention. If we vote YES on the NYS Convention this first step in our only option to reform NYS Government.
The Main reasons Divide NYS Caucus is supporting a YES vote on NYS Constitutional Convention this November 7, 2017 is the ability of the convention to Create Term Limits, Budget Reform, Real Ethics Reform and the power to separate NYS into two or three Autonomous Regions. NYS no longer listens to the will of the people; our governor and Legislature ignore, how the majority of Upstate, Long Island and even NYC people feel about a multitude of issues, for example, fiscal responsibility, ethics violations, and nepotism. Everything is decided by three men in a backroom! While at the same time our state is NOT doing the basic things government is created for such as maintaining the highways, the subways, clean water systems, working sewer systems that do not pollute, and many other things. All these problems are caused by our leaders playing politics rather than governing.
The main reasons we hear repeatedly against a NYS convention are #1 THE VOTERS MAY ELECT BAD DELEGATES. Because in the 1960s the Legislature called a convention off cycle so their members could easily run for delegate and everything they proposed was rejected by the voters. When the convention is called by a YES vote of the voters in Nov 2017; the delegates are elected in Nov 2018 at same time as the legislators and the governor are up for reelection which makes it hard for Legislators to run for delegate. Other reasons are usually scare tactics, or the convention cost which is much less than NYS wastes in a single day.
The vote on whether to hold the convention will be found on the back of your ballot at most polling places.
