Well, it looks like the pressure caused the Hershey Trust to back off the intended sale of Hershey Foods (technically, they wanted to unload their stock, but in all practicality it was a sale of the company). A lot of people around here breathed a sigh of relief.

A number of them, however, aren’t stopping there. They are collecting ten thousand signatures to force the Board members to resign in favor of new elections. I think I agree with them. These Board members definitely are not in line with the wishes of the Hershey legacy and the people of Hershey.
