03 May 2012 Target, Kohl’s Shareholders Wanted
As many of our readers know, the National Center for Public Policy Research fights crony capitalism and left-wing activities by some of America’s biggest corporations.
One of the ways we do this is by attending shareholder meetings, where we often have the opportunity to speak directly to corporate CEOs, asking them to explain what they’ve been up to, and what they plan to do in the future.
Some of these meetings are contentious. At other times, corporate CEOs agree with us on a way forward that protects the investments of their shareholders while benefiting the public and protecting liberty.
Many times, victories are won for the free market.
Right now, the National Center for Public Policy Research is conducting an ambitious shareholder meeting schedule, but we need some help. We’re looking for a conservative or free-market activist who owns shares in Target or Kohls (or both) and is willing to let us represent him or her at one or both of their shareholder meetings. Our goal is to ask a polite, public-policy oriented question on the shareholder’s behalf from a free-market point of view. There is no cost to the shareholder, but you would have to give us permission and prove you own shares (any number). The shares in the case of Target would have to have been owned by April 16, 2012 and continuously held since then and through the June 8 shareholder meeting. In the case of Kohl’s, the shares would have to have been purchased by March 7, 2012 and held continuously since then and through the Kohl’s shareholder meeting on May 10.
If you are a shareholder in either Kohl’s or Target and meet these requirements, and are willing to allow the National Center for Public Policy Research to represent you to ask a question, or are willing to discuss possibly doing so, please contact the National Center’s General Counsel, Justin Danhof, by email at [email protected] or by phone at (202) 543-4110.
