To whom it may concern,

I would like to voice my support for the proposed change that would allow investor nominees for boards of the directors on proxy ballots. I would encourage the commission to fully support this measure as well. It is well past the time when such a change should have been made. There need not be any further examples of the corporate problems a measure like this might have helped stop.

Sincerely,
John Gilmer
