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.
