Local Assemblyman Steve Hawley says the people need to make their own reform in New York State.
Hawley held a joint town hall in Hamburg last night with several other Western New York assemblymen. The message: the People’s Convention to Reform New York. It’s a movement to convene citizen New Yorkers to re-write the future of the state. And the main point, says Hawley: no elected officials will be allowed to join.
The assemblymen have drawn up a bill which would call for the People’s Convention in 2012. If passed, the question of whether to have a convention will go before voters this fall.
That same question is already scheduled to automatically go before voters in 2017.
There is an online petition supporting the constitutional convention. CLICK HERE to sign the petition.

I wonder if the governor and the legislature was controlled by republicans would assemblyman Hawley call for a constitutional convention. I appears that a few political officals want changes for their benefit.

I don't understand why everyone doesn't work together. Everyone wants control. You also have voters out there that are "party partial". They are a registered Republican, they vote straight Republican - registered Democrat, vote straight Democrat. Then they complain about how the State is run! Listen to what is being put out to us. I am a registered Republican but I will vote Democrat if I agree with their views and/or ideas. Why do we have to have political parties anyways? Everyone wants "Control". You politicians are there to be a voice for us. Apparently our voice is not being heard, only yours! It's time to wake up and stop all the overspending up in Albany. Instead of trying to come up with ideas on how to make us pay for your incompetence, maybe you need to stop spending from the top!
