Juneau water fluoridation on the ballot

If money talks, then the most controversial item on Juneau’s October ballot is Proposition 2. It aims to put fluoride back in Juneau’s drinking water. The Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) reports that supporters of fluoridation have accumulated $164,000 in contributions, mostly from the Chicago-based American Dental Association (ADA). Fluoride opponents have raised only $5,000, but they have flooded Juneau newspapers with letters to the editor.
