TELL GOV. BROWN TO RESPECT THE VOTE
The voters have spoken. Sign the petition and tell Gov. Brown to respect voters and oppose Dental Director Austin's plan for a statewide fluoridation mandate.
Oregon Dental Director Dr. Bruce Austin wants to add fluoridation chemicals to 80% of Oregon's drinking water by 2019, and asked for the legislature's help.
That plan could only be achieved through a bill in the legislature to overturn Portland's 2013 vote against fluoridation chemicals, as well as overturn a number of other votes and ordinances against fluoridation in Eugene, Bend, Ashland, Medford and Newport.
From Portland's four votes against fluoridation, to the recent Newport election where 64% of voters rejected fluoridation chemicals, voters in cities across Oregon have made their choice clear.
Add your name to the fast-growing list of citizens calling on Governor Brown, Oregon House Speaker Kotek, and Senate President Courtney respect our vote and oppose any legislation to overturn democratic votes or take away local control on water fluoridation.
After signing, please use our easy tool to directly CONTACT YOUR SPECIFIC LEGISLATIVE REPRESENTATIVES and also urge them to not support any legislation that would overturn democratic votes or take away local control on water fluoridation.
