In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
I am the owner of an independent bookstore, the former president and board chair of the American Booksellers Association, and the mayor od Oxford, Mississippi from 2001 - 2008. This merger will only accelerate the harm being done to small businesses across America, and, with them, their communities that benefit from them by virtue of jobs, tax revenue, and countless other ways.
