I am Sister Gwen Farry, BVM and represent my Community in shareholder actions with Corporations whose shares we hold in one of our funds. It is very important to us to be able to exercise corporate governance rights through the proxy system. The current system works for us. As you consider possible changes to the shareholder communication and proxy rules, we urge you to continue to protect the privacy of shareholders and maintain the current effective, functional and accurate proxy system.
