Vallas: Vote 'yes' on constitutional convention

Indications are that he isn't going to run for any office in 2010 given the fact that he signed an extension to continue running the school system in New Orleans, but he was back home to talk about a constitution convention:
Sunday, he joined with Lt. Governor Pat Quinn in supporting Tuesday's referendum to force a constitutional convention, or "con-con," in Illinois.

Vallas says Illinoisans should vote "yes" so that work can get started to reform school funding and ethics laws.

"We're entering the 21st century with a 20th century document. If you want to effectuate real change a con-con will allow you to do that," said Vallas.
