My name is Gary Gardell. I live in Farmington Hills, MI and I support the above-referenced proposal that would permit investor nominees for corporate boards to be placed on the ballot along with the board-sponsored nominees.

The existing system has fostered the environment to allow greedy, unethical corporate executives to steal billions of stockholders' investments and it needs significant reform. This appears to be one step in that direction.

Please cast my vote accordingly.

Thank you.
