A personal note from Bill Singer to all FINRA Member Firms:
If you recently read my "Time for a FINRA Tea Party?" article http://www.brokeandbroker.com/index.php?a=blog&id=405, you know that I have called for robust, open, democratic nominations for candidates to FINRA's Board of Governors. At present, for the reasons stated in the above article, I simply cannot support any FINRA Nominating Committee candidate.
A number of individuals have contacted me seeking my support for their nomination as a Board Candidate. If, as, and when requested, I will consider supporting qualified men and women to run as Petition Candidates.
Please, I beg you, do not simply check-off all the names on any slate of candidates -- whether those names are sent to you by FINRA or by any other group. Research the nominees that you are being asked to support. Do you homework. You can no longer afford to waste your votes. You've done that year after year with disastrous results. This time, make your vote matter!
I submit for your consideration the Petition for Small Firm Candidate John Moloney. Please visit this John's online biography at
Please print out John's Petition at
Sign and date, and fax back to John Moloney at 314-909-0606 or scan and email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, please call him at 314-909-0600, ext. 3007.
