I just don't get Portland. When people here vote against Fluoride, they are voting against the health of children. Guess what, you can get a water filter if you don't want to drink the Fluoride. It's much cheaper for you to do that, than it is for most people to afford prescription Fluoride supplements. I've got kids with dental issues that only started when we moved to this area. I had no idea that Portland DIDN'T have Fluoride in it's drinking water until my kids started getting cavities (and we practice excellent dental hygiene). I am constantly amazed at how people here constantly vote against measures that help children--be it health, services or education.
