IN 2008 and shortly before the arrest of Rod Blagojevich and during the time we elected our first Black President, Illinois had an opportunity to vote in favor of a constitutional convention. Such a referendum is voted on every 20 years and the next vote is in 2028.

One of our former Governors - George Ryan a convicted felon sadly - is calling for a constitution convention. This is the process according to the Illinois constitution (article XIV). In light of this budget stalemate between the General Assembly and the current Governor Bruce Rauner we need a con-con more than ever.
