Connections: Is this the year New York State holds a constitutional convention, part two

We recently heard from supporters of a New York State constitutional convention. Today, we hear from the opponents.

They tell us that they don't think supporters fully understand why they have serious concerns about a convention. By opening up the state's foundational document, opponents fear that all kinds of catastrophes could result: workers losing protections; the environment losing safeguards. Our guests:

  • Jesse Lenney, upstate regional political director for the Working Families Party
  • Paul Hypolite, NYSUT regional political organizer
