It looks like the vote to declassify the board of directors fell just one vote short. Unfortunately that vote belonged to Ariel and their vote counted for almost 21%. With Ariel voting for the resolution it passes bigtime with over 64% of the shares, a huge win for a shareholder resolution. About 15 million shares were voted in favor of the resolution to declassify the board. I can't imagine Ariel supporting such crummy shareprice appreciation for much longer. I'll try again next year! I appreciate the help of those who supported the resolution by vote and at the annual picnic.
