Re: Request for rulemaking to amend Rule 14a-4(b)(1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to prohibit conferring discretionary authority to issuers with respect to non-votes on the voter information form or proxy. Please add my support for the proposed petition. We need to give power back to those who own a company and take it away from those who are paid to manage it. The current rules are unfair—as can be seen the fact that currently virtually all proposals made by management pass. Bahar Gidwani, CFA
