To Whom It May Concern:
I am a retiree in the State of Louisiana. Having just read a New York Times article about one of the world's largest asset managers, who manages government monies including that of state and local governments, I am extremely disappointed that he is able to put his political beliefs above the returns of those for whom he is entrusted to serve.
I am particularly disappointed in his ability to go after Louisiana's oil industry, the lifeblood of our state's economy for his self-righteous beliefs.
How much further will it go before the SEC puts an end to this charade?
I strongly urge you all to please consider ending this practice by managers like this, as well as the practice of self-righteous political ideologues from taking over corporate boards through proxy firms to do the same.
