On May 6th, Franklin County residents will have a chance to vote on Issue 6, a 1.25-mill replacement levy for the Columbus Zoo. An out-of-state group funded by the Koch Brothers is trying to convince Columbus-area residents to vote No.
Americans for Prosperity, the Virginia-based group founded, funded and chaired by the infamous Koch Brothers, has been sending emails and mailers to county residents urging them to vote against the levy, which would cost home owners about $23 a year more per $100,000 of home value.
According to NBC4, the levy could help fund a satellite zoo could in Downtown Columbus as well as a new animal hospital and TRAM system.
