Good for you! We need more individuals willing to take action against fiefdom corporations. You should be on the board to avert a proxy fight. Maybe you can do the same with CRCV - Butler and his lackeys.
Timmer, thank you brother for all your hard work. You are my hero. If you come to Chicago a steak & lobster dinner is on me. I have owned/followed this company for decades and I use their products faithfully. Their product quality is superb however I cringe at what "management" has done to the owners. it's tough to stay loyal to the brand. I buy at my local Ace Hardware. my father owned an ace franchise in the 1970's. what a damn shame for an outcome..........thus far.
