Herbert Kurz says one of the directors he wants to put on the board of Presidential Life Corp. (Nasdaq:PLFE) is political strategist Donna Brazile.
Kurz is the founder and former chief executive officer of Presidential Life, Nyack, N.Y.
Presidential Life issued a call Tuesday for shareholders to reject new efforts by Kurz to return as CEO and replace the company’s board members with directors of his choosing.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has now posted a proxy statement Kurz has filed concerning those efforts on its website.
Kurz says he will seek election of 8 director nominees Aug. 18, during the company’s annual meeting.
The best known of the director nominees is Brazile, who directed Al Gore’s presidential campaign in 2000 and has appeared frequently on television discussion panels.
