Dear Chairman Cox:
Iwas going to merely copy the sample letter from Oxfam, but I want you to know that I really believe that shareholders need information. I carefully read all shareholder resolutions and proposals and think carefully about how I'd like my company to run...and vote accordingly. We, as shareholders, have the responsibility to know all the issues that might affect our company's business. We should have learned by now that corporate transparency is vital to a healthy economy.
Please protect the right of investors to file shareholder resolutions and I urge you to take no action on the proposed initiatives that would curtail or eliminate this essential right.
