Subject: Comment on File Number 4-637

January 9, 2013

I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending and to do so this year.

I believe that the availability of large money contributions from special interests is undermining the democratic principles on which our country is founded. This ruling would be an important curb on this influence and be a step in returning the future of our country to all the citizens, rather than the just the wealthy ones.

Thank you for considering my comment.
