Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

To Whomever it may concern:

I am writing to express my concern about the lack of transparency in the use of shareholder monies to influence elections. Nothing is so injurious to democratic process than a lack of such transparency and when it involves the use of shareholder monies without their permission or consent it is most obnoxious. Please require compliance with this simple principle of transparency. Thank You for your attention to this matter-


James B. Canary
