If the PM had done basic research they might have discovered that a Multnomah County program already exists to provide area children with FREE daily fluoride treatments.
MC Health Dept fluoride program details:
Portland Public Schools fluoride distribution info:
So-the question is...who stands to gain financially from building a $5 million treatment facility which will cost $500K per year to maintain-that will be paid for increases to our water bills??
At a time when we're cutting city budgets, why add a costly program which essentially duplicates a child targeted fluoride distribution program in place now?
It makes no sense to medicate the entire population if it's "the kids" teeth HKHP is supposedly so worried about.
Count me in as another Hollywood resident & business owner who will NOT patronize any company who chooses to destroy rather than preserve an interesting old building, even if it costs a bit more to do so. The short-sightedness of corporations astounds me-had they spent the additional funds to preserve this landmark, it would have paid off ten-fold in goodwill and increased revenue from grateful customers. Pisses me off every time I walk by this corner-brilliant marketing strategy, Key Bank.
