"Why don't the protestors take this up themselves with Wyden/Merkley/GreenBikePin et al.?" We have. They won't listen. And so when your leaders refuse to listen it is time to take to the streets to try and force them to listen.
Save our water! Bull Run is the cleanest water source in the nation, and they want to spend $400 million dollars to blend that with nasty river water and store it underground with all kinds of specialized lighting to clean it...after they make it dirty! All this so Mayor Hales' donors can have lucrative contracts, and all we get is less clean drinking water, more water bureau debt, and a 44% rate increase on our water bill. Cronyism! Stand up fight back! Demand a waiver, and if we don't get one, Occupy Mt. Tabor to protect our water supply!!
You forgot the most important argument: maybe there are chemicals in our water already, but they are there to make our water potable. Fluoride has nothing to do with making water safe to drink. At best fluoride is a preventative medication and only a petty, arrogant tyrant would feel they have the right to forcibly medicate the public water supply of an entire city against so much opposition. Welcome to the nanny state.
