That’s the core of a radical proposal by Richard Emery, former chair of the Civilian Complaint Review Board. He’s supporting a New York Constitutional Convention (remember, we’re voting on whether to have one in November) and wants it to replace the Senate and Assembly with a single body.
In response, the opposition is circulating a letter from election lawyer Jerry Goldfeder: vote no because the delegate selection process is flawed. Keep in mind, though, Goldfeder’s legal clients are elected officials. Some of them would be out of a job if the Constitutional Convention did abolish the Senate or Assembly.
