Dear Editor,

The policy proposals, such as a unicameral state legislature and term limits, cited by this paper in support of a constitutional convention are mere window dressing (“Pros of a Con Con outweigh the cons” - 9/28).

The real objectives of the shadowy billionaires funding the pro-convention campaign, slashing public employee pensions and eroding environmental protections, are anything but progressive.

Urgently needed reforms, like guaranteeing workers the internationally recognized right to withhold their labor and preventing privatization schemes - charters, vouchers or tax credits - from defunding public schools, can be achieved through the amendment process without putting all rights protected under the state constitution in peril.
