Dear Mr. Mardock:

I'm writing this letter in opposition to the Farm Credit System (FCS)
petition against giving a voice to their member owners (say on pay) and in
support of the Farm Credit Administration's (FCA) final rule adopted last
October.

The FCS is a government sponsored enterprise or GSE and they need to have
a high standard of accountability and transparency in their dealings.  The
FCS is also structured as a cooperative and their members need to be
allowed to have a vote on the large pay packages of FCS CEOs, executives,
and senior officers.

Sincerely,


Gregg Lewis
