The Michigan Constitutional Convention - The Great Debate! Get educated, it's on the November ballot.

Hi Rattlers,

Our monthly meeting on June 7th is going to deal with this topic. It is on the ballot and is a very "HOT" topic.

I have included the link below so you can watch a debate about the pros and cons of the con-con.

Please take some time to familiarize yourself with this proposal before the meeting.

Our speaker for the evening is Henry S. Woloson. He is FOR the convention but assures me he will present both sides of the issue.

Mr. Woloson will provide plenty of time for questions and answers.

The time to find out about the issue is now, not when you are going into the voting booth. Come out and find out!

GREAT DEBATES: Pros and cons of a Con-Con


By John Bebow - April 22, 2010

Should Michigan voters tear up the rule book governing Michigan and start from scratch? Watch now as former Grand Rapids Mayor John Logie (pro) and Michigan Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President Robert Labrant (con) debate whether voters should approve a Constitutional Convention in November.

Thanks for taking the time to watch the video and commenting on it.

This is what I am talking about - going in to a discussion/meeting knowing what the topic is and ready to fire some questions.

The thing I am concerned about is because the "environment" is so bad in this state - something that could be bad for MIichigan could be easily be spun as good because we are so desperate. That being said, I want to give Henry Woloson a fair shot as presenting his case.

Should be an entertaining and informative night - this IS on the ballot. The time to have your questions answered is now not the night before the vote or standing in the booth trying to figure out proposal wording.

P.S. Heard you on Thayrone. Good call.

Interesting video. If a constitution is well constructed it should be able to stand the test of time. Changing Michigan's simply because of a 16-year cycle is questionable. At issue is whether the current constitution is a reasonable one. If so, don't fix something that isn't broken.

Seven months of expected work, $45 million price tag, existing hyper-partisan political situation, opportunities to address state issues via policies instead of constitutional re-writes, etc., raise red flags on the topic of a MI constitutional convention (con-con). California has changed it's constitution based on agenda rather than need and that state is paying a hefty price.

Is there a solid of list of things good and bad regarding the MI Constitution.
