Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

January 31, 2012

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

Dear Public Servants -

I have requested that my US Senators and my US Representative contact your office to ask that you exercise your regulatory authority to require public disclosure of corporate political contributions to PACs.

I am confident that Senators Leahy and Sanders and Representative Welch's office have been in touch with you on this matter, but it is important for you to know that I am one of tens of thousands of Vermonters who want to encourage you to use the full authority of your office to ensure that we the citizens can rely on transperency in these matters.

This is not a partisan issue.

Thank you for the work you do on behalf of our country.


Jean MacDonald
