Dear SEC:

I am a citizen who supports the SEC proposal to allow investor nominees for boards of directors on the proxy ballot. Directors need to be held accountable for protecting the interests of shareholders. The only way this is ever going to happen is if there are regulations forcing them to be. This proposal is a step toward that. I support the proposal because debacles like Enron hurt real people and leave directors high and dry, and that's not the kind of country or world that I or any other investor want to live in. Please support this proposal.

Sincerely yours,

Deborah Kreuze
