COSI members welcomed in Detroit (no tax levy necessary)

Per NBC24's website:

**************************************************************************
Members of Toledo's recently closed COSI Museum need not worry about wasted memberships.

The Detroit Science Center is offering current COSI members the opportunity to become members of the Detroit Science Center at no cost and receive full Science Center membership benefits for the duration of their COSI memberships.
**************************************************************************

What I found interesting is this tidbit of information about how the Detroit Science Center is funded...

"The Detroit Science Center is a private, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization which receives no federal or state funding for operations and operates solely through support from foundations, corporations, individuals and admissions."

Why couldn't Toledo's COSI have tried this method of funding?

No votes yet

Support from foundations, corporations, individuals and admissions is too much work. Just con the voters into voting for a perpetual tax ... or go to Czarty, the Czity Czouncil, or the Czounty Czommission with hat in hand.

We have the government we deserve.
