Description

When New York State voters head to the polls in November, their ballots will include a question asking whether the state should hold a constitutional convention.

Sponsored by New Yorkers Against Corruption and Effective NY, the forum will be moderated by Casey Seiler, the Times Union’s Senior Editor for News, and feature a panel of advocates from both sides of the debate:

Gerry Benjamin, associate vice president for regional engagement and director of the Benjamin Center at SUNY New Paltz

Arthur “Jerry” Kremer, founder and Chairman of Empire Government Strategies and former Assembly Ways and Means Committee chairman

Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union

Bill Samuels, founder and chairman of Effective NY
