Dear Secretary Cox:
I am writing to express my concern about the possibility of weakening shareholders' right to file non-binding advisory resolutions under Rule 14a-8.
Eliminating this right would remove an important tool of management accountability to shareholders. I strongly oppose any effort to curtail this important component of shareholder democracy. In this way, as a shareholder, I am able to participate with many groups in ensuring corporate ethical responsibility.
Thank you for your consideration.
