An illusory dissident shareholder group — which surfaced last month only through a Facebook page and a news release — never attained liftoff at Tuesday's annual shareholders meeting of Publix Super Markets Inc. in Lakeland. The nine current directors were re-elected. No one in the audience of employee-shareholders asked to speak. "It was business as usual and ended early," said Maria Brous, a spokeswoman for the grocery chain that employs over 160,000. The group had advanced a slate of write-in candidates to lead an effort to get the employee-owned company's privately traded shares publicly traded. None of the candidates surfaced publicly, and the Facebook page remained idle except for being "liked" by 15 people.
