Every ten years the State of Hawaii constitution requires that the state consider having a Constitutional Convention whether we need one or not. Yesterday Lieutenant Governor Aiona recommended that we hold the convention without really making any significant objective(s) for the convention to achieve. We haven't had one here since 1978. Aiona just seems to think it will be good for the people and that it will give us more say in how our government is run.
I am not so sure. Seems that this opens the door for lots of mischief, and once the convention is seated, it can take lots of different directions. If we do have one, and that in itself will be interesting as the debate develops, it will be most interesting to see what will happen. Jerry
