    in Parents

    Asbury Park Convention Hall is a 3,600-seat indoor EXHIBIT CENTER located on the BOARDWALK and on the BEACH in ASBURY PARK, MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ, United States.


    It was built between 1928 and 1930 and is used for sports, concerts and other special events.


    Adjacent to the Convention Hall is the PARAMOUNT THEATRE; both are connected by a Grand Arcade.


    Both structures are listed in the NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES.


    The first official convention held at Convention Hall was the annual meeting of the NEW YORKS FRIAR'S CLUB on July 5, 1930. 


    Since that time, the hall has hosted countless conventions, community meetings, sporting events, trade shows and antique automobile shows. Since 1951, the Monmouth County Cotillion Society has held its annual Debutante Ball at Convention Hall. 


    The hall is also the alternate venue for Asbury Park's Easter Parade in the event of inclement weather.


    Since February 2008, Convention Hall has been the home venue for the Jersey Shore Roller Girls roller derby league

    Interview with Stewart Collins, Convention of States Volunteer in Florida

    in US Government

    So, you're convinced that a Convention of States via Article V is the best hope for our nation, and you're ready to help out anyway that you can.  But, where do you start?  What can you do?


    Today's episode will be dedicated to an interview with Stewart Collins, a Convention of States volunteer in Florida. Stewart is the epitome of a self-governing individual - in today's language, Stewart "takes initiative" rather than waiting for direction.  I first became aware of Stewart in early 2015 on Facebook; the Convention of States Project began filing legislation in multiple states in a short period of time, and it became very difficult to keep track of which States were filing, which were already in process, and which had already completed the process with his maps - he became known as "Map Guy"!


    I realize that with the increaed interest generated from Governor Abbott's surprise endorsement last Friday, this would be a great time for news and phone calls - unfortunately, circumstances are such that I cannot accomodate a podcast for news and phone calls until the end of the month.  At that time we will dedicate at least one episode exclusively to Governor Greg Abbott's inclusion of a call for a Convention of States in the "Texas Plan", the legislative priorities he has for the next session!


    In the meantime, please consider hearing from active Convention of States volunteer from Florida.


    Mr. Collins will share some of his experiences in Florida, including participation in a mock Convention of States, and the success of seeing a state legislature approve of our Article V resolution..


    That Provident Article" is hosted by Convention of States Texas volunteer Paul Hodson, with the Convention of States since late 2013, a District Captain in Texas from February 2014 through November 2015, and now serving as Co-Director for the Convention of States Texas.

    Who Says It's a Constitutional Convention? (Part 5)

    in US Government

    Our 5th, and final, installment of our examination of the history behind the phrase "Constitutional Convention", as it has been, and continues to be, applied to describe the Constitution's Article V State authorized amending mode, a "convention for proposing amendments".


    Last week we discussed the 1960's campaign, led by Senator Everett Dirksen, to promote an amending convention focused on overturning the apportionment rulings of an activist Supreme Court, and the responses from the likes of Senators Joseph Tydings, Robert Kennedy, William Proxmire, and Jacob Javits.  This final look at the fruits of the disinformation campaign will pick up with the influence of Senator Robert Kennedy and his political clout, the continuing presence of Yale Law Professor Charles Black, and culminating in the opposition successfully rebranding the phrase "convention to propose amendments" into the politically charged phrase "Constitutional Convention", as a means to counteract the Balanced Budget Amendment movement of the late 1970's/early 1980's.


    How has the prominence of the phrase affected the view of Article V?


    We'll spend a little bit of time with Convention of States news first.  And save some time for phone calls.
