Forum on Constitutional Convention set

LIBERTY - The New York State Constitution requires that every 20 years the people decide if a Constitutional Convention should be held to consider amendments to the State Constitution. The purpose of this Ballot Question - “Shall there be a convention to revise the Constitution and amend the same?” - is to allow the voters of New York State to determine whether a Constitutional Convention will be held in 2019.
If the vote to hold a convention wins, then everything in the New York Constitution can be considered. There is much at stake.
We Are One-Sullivan is sponsoring a forum to discuss the pros and cons of a convention, and what alternatives exist for making changes. The speakers will be Barry Kaufman, from the New York State Alliance of Retired Americans; Michael Kink, from the Strong Economy for All Coalition; and Wes Gillingham, from Catskill Mountainkeeper.

The forum will be held on Thursday, October 5, from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. at the Liberty Senior Citizens Center at 119 North Main Street, Liberty. The event is free and open to the public, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and get answers. For more information, call 845-292-4895.
We Are One-Sullivan is an informal group of Sullivan County residents concerned with the issues affecting our county, state and nation.
