To the SEC:

I certainly favor the SEC proposal to allow investor nominees for boards of directors on the proxy ballot. I am an investor who would like to see fair play and competition in my corporations rather then the system as it continues to be practiced. The system as it continues to be practiced has produced too many instances of plain robbery from the owners (shareholders) of companies.

Sincerely,
Ann M. Shelby
