If you are a shareholder please go to FirstMerit.com's investor section and pull up the 8K that was filed this week. Multiple services that advise mutual fund, pension fund and other large shareholders of how to vote on shareholder matters (elect/reelect the auditor, elect/reelect board members, exec. comp., etc.) have disagreed with the board's recommendation on this year’s executive compensation plan. Also please vote on this matter and don't just ignore your proxy this year.
Also please share your thoughts on this board after you read it.
