Woah, people are freaking out over what’s going down at the Louisville Zoo these days.
By now, everyone is aware of Greg Fischer’s push to privatize the zoo, right?
So it will come as no surprise to you that Mark Zoeller, the Assistant Director at the Zoo is leaving in two weeks to take a job in Public Works. Why? Could it be to protect his public pension when the Zoo is no longer controlled by Metro Government? You can put your money on yes. And Zoo staff say he and the Director (Walczak) know what’s going on behind the scenes without sharing it with longtime employees.
This comes after the resignation of the Development Coordinator last August. The Development Director left in November/December.
And several others are expected to jump ship soon. Gotta keep those taxpayer-funded retirement plans, ya know.
It’s being okayed by board members because they know where their bread is buttered. Doesn’t smell right.
