    Filed a petition to stop fluoridation in 30 days. Lawn signs are ten to one against putting this in our water.

    And the backers are doing ALEC style initiative work which raises numbers of red flags.

      Several Portlanders say they received a strange phone call last night: a recorded message asking how they planned to vote on fluoridating the water in Wichita, Kansas.
      Voters in Wichita rejected fluoridation in a city vote last Nov. 6. As WW reported earlier this week, the Wichita campaign was spearheaded by real-estate developer James Garvey, who founded a group called Kansas Taxpayers Network to "represent Kansas taxpayers at the state and local level by advocating limited taxes and government spending to create a free market environment."
