Info on an upcoming fluoridation vote in Portland OR

Portland (OR) Alliance for Democracy endorsed the "Vote No on Fluoridation" of Portland's pure Bull Run water a couple months ago after some extended conversation and having heard presentations from both sides of the issues. In the end, they decided that the only additions which can be justified to our water are chemicals which make the water safe to drink. That has already been done and the addition of fluoride does not meet that standard. Additionally, the benefits of fluoridation are unclear while the dangers for at least some community members are too great. Our water should not be a medical delivery system. If you're in Portland, a vote is coming up on the issue--here's some info and how to get involved
