View the 2021 Proxy Statement language regarding resolution #3.
The intent of the resolution is to amend current Sealaska Bylaws (Section 184.108.40.206, Article III, Board of Directors). The bylaws would be amended as follows (current language to be removed is shown with
“The Inspectors shall provide to any nominee appearing on the corporate proxy and who requests it,
- The total number of shareholders voting at the meeting, in person or by proxy;
- The total number of shares represented;
- The number of proxies that are found by the Inspectors to be invalid, or to have been superseded by a later proxy, and the number of votes represented by such proxies;
- The number of Quorum Only or withheld votes;
- The number of Directed votes cast;
- Total number of Discretionary votes designated to each candidate by the proxyholders;
- Transparency of election results.
- Shareholders would gain a better understanding of the election process and discretionary allocation.
- Helps independent candidates with strategy.
- Potentially increase the number of independent candidates that get elected.
- The bylaws encourage a “team-based” approach, where the endorsed nominees work as a team and support each other.
- Makes some nominees look weak if they did not seek directed votes, and instead sought discretionary votes in support of the team.
- Turnover on the Board of Directors has already occurred with existing election practices.
- There is no evidence that the desired amendment would promote fairness or a better election process.
