Do you want to know more about the topics and issues you see in the news, as well as the civic institutions and traditions that govern them? The library and its partners want to be your source for information and answers. This ongoing program will provide refreshers on key topics you may recall from your high school government classes, as well as deep-dive explorations of issues pulled from current events. With a fact-based approach, the program will seek to answer the questions that participants in American society need to know in order to be the best citizens possible. This month, village trustee and retired educator Rich Stewart will present on the New York State Constitutional Convention vote that’s been making headlines: what is involved in the process? What are the pros and cons associated with holding a convention and voting to amend the constitution? What alternatives to constitutional amendments exist to alter the way things are done in our state? Stewart will also open a dialogue for attendees to discuss what kinds of amendments the average citizen would like to see proposed.
