Every 20 years, New Yorkers decide whether or not there should be a
constitutional convention. Even though the vote is a year away, now is the time
for us to study the issue and send our input to the State League, which will be
deciding in March whether we will support, oppose, or remain neutral on this
Peter J. Galie, professor emeritus and former chairman of the political science
department at Canisius College, is one of the state's leading experts on the history of
the New York State Constitution and the mechanics of how a constitutional convention
works. He has authored, co-authored, or edited too many leading books and papers on
the Constitution to list here, so we'll just mention that his latest such project, as editor
of New York's Broken Constitution, is being released by SUNY Press this month.
Make reservations by noon on Tuesday,
