I strongly support the proposal to allow investor nominees for boards of the directors on the proxy ballot. This proposal barely scratches the surface of the reforms we need to place corporate governance in the hands of owners (shareholders- in case anyone has forgotten). Any argument that claims "special interest groups" will gain control is ridiculous, as these are partial owners of the company and entitled to some control. Please give this, and future proposals that seek to extend shareholder control and improve corporate governance, serious consideration.

Best Regards,
