Ladies and Gentlemen,

I commend the SEC for putting forward approaches that can provide shareholders with a greater voice in the companies that we own. As this article points out, any easy solutions are apt to be complex.

As a 30+ year veteran of the securities industry and as the founder and CEO of a registered broker/dealer, I would very much like to testify and/or comment as to the power the corporations have and how little voice we shareholders have in how public companies are run.

Would you please copy me on any future releases regarding this topic?

Thank you.
