Transcript of Panel Thirty
618 1 MR. SMITH: We have Tunua Thrash speaking on 2 behalf of Senator Barbara Boxer. 3 MS. THRASH: I am Tunua Thrash. I have 4 submitted the written statements of Senator Barbara 5 Boxer. I have a few remarks regarding her statement. 6 The comments of Barbara Boxer echo and 7 underscore those of the protesters of yesterday in 8 opposing the merger. Senator Boxer is concerned that 9 NationsBank will not have been the BofA that we have 10 known as the corporate citizen of San Francisco and 11 believes the pledge that NationsBank has put forward is 12 hollow in so much that it makes no specific commitment. 13 Senator Boxer is not yet convinced that 14 Californians will be well served, especially those 15 vulnerable communities by the combination of these two 16 banks. Senator Boxer would like to remind NationsBank 17 that California is no North Carolina and NationsBank must 18 be prepared to compete in California among its diverse 19 and emerging markets. Thank you. 20 MS. SMITH: Thank you very much. We already 21 have the statement for the record, right? 22 MS. THRASH: Yes.
