Gilford, Pennsylvania: Gilford Water Authority officials have decided to end fluoridationafter more than 60 years of practicing it. The authority sent a letter to water customers stating, “We believe we should not put anything into the water that is not required by regulation to maintain the potability and pH balance of your water.” The decision has been aggressively criticized by local pro-fluoridation dentists, who plan on attending the water authority’s March 9th meeting to bully the board into reversing their decision.
Sonoma City, California: This week City Councilors voted 3-2 to oppose a proposal by the County government to add fluoride to the city’s drinking water. The council will be sending a letter of opposition to the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. The idea for the vote and letter of opposition came from local fluoride-free campaigner Dawna Gallagher-Stroeh along with others with the Clean Water Sonoma-Marin group, who reached out to Mayor David Cook about the harms and risks associated with fluoridation.
