Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
This is an important note. We are not even saying do _NOT_ support the people we don't. We _ARE_ saying, tell us that you are doing it. Why should they hide this? This is note the vote, their people get their own vote, why should they get a second say with this support, without at very least disclosing those facts?
It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.
So I strongly support the SEC issuing a rule in the near future that would require publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their spending on political activities.
Both shareholders and the public deserve to know how much a given corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.
Thank you for considering my comment.
Sincerely,Brain John Gorski
