Hi,

I support S7-19-03. For too long the stockholders have not had a real say in how companies are run . We do not even have a choice for who gets elected to the board of directors. We only get to withold our vote, for someone who is going to be elected anyway.

We live in America, and true democracy should be the rule. Stockholder should have the right to decide who manages our companies. The stockholders are the owners.

I appreciate your taking the time to protect my rights as an owner.

Thanks,
