Dear SEC Members:

Please support transparency in regards to publicly traded companies disclosing their political contributions. Americans are capable of intelligence and conscience, regardless of income and contributions, and we deserve at least to know where the money is going. Money was never meant to be part of the vote, it only further displaces the people from the very democracy our laws are supposed to preserve.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Jeffrey D. Ernst

Sincerely,

Jeffrey Ernst
