4. I agree with you on the statewide proposals.
Another thing people don't always mention regarding a constitutional convention is that most of the people elected as delegates would be politicians who have already held office. In other words, (a) many of them have been part of the problem (not to impugn ALL of them, but many!), and (b) their main 'qualification' would be that people have heard of them before.

Proposal 2 doesn't go far enough, IMO - I think ALL felons should be barred for office for at least some time. But Prop 2 is an improvement.
