Re: “Oakland Zoo Operators Violate Election Laws

If I vote for a new tax, I need to be confident it's really needed---all these different taxes really do add up for individuals like me, and for small businesses. If the Zoo reports year-end "surplus funds" to the IRS in recent years to the tune of millions of dollars, and they are not required to open their books to show us how they are spending money they already get from the City of Oakland and other public sources, how can I tell if they really need the money for "humane animal care"? I feel blind on this one. All I know is I've gotten my third full-color, glossy campaign mailer from the Zoo, and there are SOOO many full-color, double-sided lion signs everywhere, and all that is not cheap. I can't help but conclude the Zoo has more money in their wallet than they lead me to believe.
