Giants fighting City Hall over disclosure of finances

Because the San Francisco Giants received a favorable tax assessment on AT&T Park (alias SBC Park, alias Pac Bell Park, alias Maudie Mae Suggins), the team is trying to keep the public from seeing the justification for the assessment. Because if people saw it, then they could see some of the Giants profit/loss statements.

For those not from California, San Francisco is unique in California in that it is both a city and a county and many government tasks are handled by "city" officials, although in the rest of the state, they would be handled by "county" officials. Such as tax assessments, which are the domain of county governments in the other 57 counties of California.

I'm glad you said unique in California. Honolulu is both city and county; Maui County encompasses the island of the same name, along with Kahoolawe, Lanai, and Molokai. The Big Island is Hawai'i County, Kauai and Niihau are in Kauai County.

I hear the voters in Kahoolawe are reluctant to come to the polls.

Yeah, the ingrates. The Navy spent billions cleaning it up, and they still won't vote. 'Course, the fact that they're all avians might have something to do with it too.
