New Hampshire Taxpayers to Demonstrate at Bank of America as Part of Continued Nationwide Actions to Take Back the Economy
Granite Staters to Call on Senator Judd Gregg to Demand Accountability from Bank of America
CONCORD, NH - On Tuesday, April 28, thousands of taxpayers will take part in actions at Bank of America branches across the country to collect and deliver “Taxpayer Proxies” demanding the bank fire CEO Ken Lewis and commit to financial reform that puts consumers and workers ahead of profits.
The proxy actions take place on the eve of Bank of America’s annual shareholder meeting in Charlotte. After receiving $45 billion in bailout funds from politicians like Senator Gregg, taxpayers have become the largest shareholders of Bank of America and are demanding that their voices be heard.
Working families in Manchester, Nashua, Hanover, and Exeter will join together to demand that Bank of America act to fire CEO Ken Lewis and put an end to his failed policies which have hurt workers and consumers alike. Protesters will call on Senator Judd Gregg, the only sitting member of New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation who voted for the bailouts, to join them in holding Bank of America accountable.
