As I have written on these pages before (“City Bar’s Support of Constitutional Convention is Flawed,” June 14, 2017), in 1997 I was in favor of a constitutional convention but this year I am persuaded that the risks are greater than the opportunities. I also believe that the delegate selection process, long criticized by even those who support the convention, is sufficiently flawed that it would probably lead to a convention that looks and feels like the Albany morass so many abhor. Undoubtedly, there will be sitting legislators and their staff running for such positions (and collecting a second salary).
