CEO's Stop Campaign Contributions
I received an attachment to a Facebook posting last week about an initiative led by Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks. Over 100 CEOs have signed on to stop all political campaign contributions to the President, Presidential contenders, and members of the House and the Senate until the gridlock in Washington, DC, stops. Mr. Schultz is asking everyday Americans to join the initiative. It will be interesting to see if such an approach has any impact. Interesting, nonetheless, and I hope that it gets their attention.
