This excerpt taken from the TRGT DEF 14A filed Apr 29, 2008.
On March 12, 2008, the Board, acting upon the recommendation of its Governance and Nominating Committee, nominated M. James Barrett, Ph.D., Julia R. Brown, J. Donald deBethizy, Ph.D. and John P. Richard for election as Class II directors at the meeting. Class II directors elected at the meeting will serve for a term to expire at the 2011 annual meeting of stockholders, with each director to hold office until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified or until his or her death, retirement, resignation or removal.
Unless authority to vote for a particular nominee is withheld, the shares represented by the enclosed proxy will be voted FOR the election of each of M. James Barrett, Ph.D., Julia R. Brown, J. Donald deBethizy, Ph.D. and John P. Richard as Class II directors. In the event that any nominee becomes unable or unwilling to serve, the shares represented by the enclosed proxy will be voted for the election of such other person as the Board may recommend in his or her place. We have no reason to believe that any nominee will be unable or unwilling to serve as a director.
A plurality of the votes of the shares present in person or by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the election of directors is required to elect each nominee as a director.
