    Tesla shareholders voted Tuesday to keep Elon Musk in the position of chairman following a proposal to boot him from the board of directors. “I’ve had the most excruciating, hellish months I’ve ever had. And a lot of other people at Tesla,” Musk told shareholders attending their annual meeting in Mountain View, Calif. Proxy votes...

    I was really pleased. Musk was patient and gracious with all questions, even those from a younger girl who said she owned just one share.

    Overall, the information was good - but as always I long for more depth. But I do understand Musk's reluctance to provide much, given how Tesla is crucified for any missteps.

    I'd much rather Elon tell his shareholders kinda the same thing he tells investors in SpaceX - that they should count on not seeing a return for a fairly long time period, and that investors should be prepared to play the long game.

    I was really looking forward to hearing questions on how the Tesla will advance voice control. Such as "Heat, up 5 degrees", "Defrost On", "Drivers seat heat On", Ect-
    Then there is how the AEB really works as compared to the industry standard of making complete emergency stopping, How cross traffic warning automatically warns the driver of objects entering the rear clearance cross walk area, when backing up.
    I am not asking for KIT or even HAL, just thinking, It Is the worlds best damned car - Right?

    I understand that some investors also wanted to remove Kimbal and other board members. Did that go through? What are these investors thinking? Do they want to destroy Tesla? If they don't like the way things are at Tesla why don't they go and invest in BYD like Warren Buffet did. That way they can have their short term profit since that is all they seemed concerned about. Glad to see that Elon is still Chairman and that common sense prevailed for that vote.

    Hang in there. We know if has been very difficult for you over the last several months. And it may get even more difficult in the months ahead. But please know that a lot of us around the world are praying for you to be successful in all your efforts in trying to make the world a better place.
