Activism Simplest

Joseph Stilwell’s proxy campaign continues with Harvard Illinois Bancorp ($HARI), and May 22nd is the date set for the annual meeting.

As well-meaning as my previous commentary was, it now appears premature–for Mr. Stilwell’s latest letter to shareholders takes the written word down to three sentences, from seven.

Oh, but note, this time a picture is included.  And you know what a picture is worth…

Dear Fellow Shareholder,

Below is a picture taken at last year’s annual shareholder meeting of our Bank’s Chairman.  None of the other board members bothered to wake him up.

If you, like me, believe it’s time to bring a fresh influence to our Bank’s board of directors, please vote the GREEN proxy card for Mark Saladin.

Sincerely, Joseph Stilwell 

So for today, I will dub this–“activism simplest.”  Hopefully this moniker lasts longer than my last attempt.

Disclosure: No position.
