FlagLunch with the League

November 13, 11 AM - 2PM

The N.Y. State League has presented us with two issues to be voted on for consensus. They are “Access to the Ballot” and “Term Limits for State Legislators.” We will make presentations on these questions at our November Lunch with the League.

The N.Y. State Primary System is the basis for access to the Ballot. Other states have different primary systems such as “Open Primaries”, Semi (Independent) & Semi (New and Independent), Blake, Hybrid. We will explain the different issues and will also discuss “the Wilson/Pakula Law” which is in effect in our State.

The second presentation will be on term limits for State Legislation. Do you think that Term Limits would bring us a corrupt free State? What happens to our State government if we sacrifice experience legislators for new comers? How has term limits worked in New York City?
Please be sure to attend so that our members can participate in this important consensus.

(Admission is open to all but the vote is open to LWV members ONLY)
