This time around, there was actually a pretty big item on the ballot. There was a millage increase that effectively was in place to save the zoo - because the city of Detroit once again managed to mess up its finances.
The millage passed easily, but a lot of people were afraid it wouldn't; not because people are against the zoo, but because the city has been so morally and financially bankrupt lately that the tri-county area is reluctant to trust the with any money. Hopefully Detroit doesn't find a way to eff this up.
