I have recently become aware of Dental Director Austin's suggestion of adding fluoridation chemicals to 80% of Oregonians' water by 2019. As I'm sure you know, this goal would require legislation overturning the 2013 Portland vote in which 61% of citizens rejected fluoridation, as well as democratic votes and ordinances in cities from Eugene, to Medford, to Bend.
Will you pledge to support the democratic votes of Oregonians and to not support any legislation that would overturn democratic votes or take away local control on water fluoridation? Thank you for your reply.
