To the SEC,

I am a private investor and strongly support the above proposal to allow share holders the right to have their nominee appear on the company sponsored ballot. If an equity investor in a company can vote for the slate, the company should also have the responsibility to provide all of its shareholders with the option of voting for another candidate besides the incumbent or company sponsored nominee.

Thank you.
