In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The mission of the FTC is to protect consumers and competition. Allowing the merger of Staples/Essendant, Inc would be failing that mission. It fails to protect consumers (me, my family, my friends, my neighbors, etc.) and competition (local businesses and the backbone of communities across the USA). Please correct the error of your recent vote to approve this merger. It does not have the peoples' best interest in mind. I hope you will provide the appropriate oversight in this situation and shutdown the merger. A vibrant economy is at stake!
