Portland mayor Sam Adams has answered that "yes" he will watch An Inconvenient Tooth in full before voting on water fluoridation. This is in response to the open letter below.
September 7th, 2012
Open letter to Sam Adams, Randy Leonard, Nick Fish, Amanda Fritz and Dan Saltzman - Members of the Portland city council.
Hello Sam, Randy, Nick, Amanda, and Dan,
I have directly handed to each of you (except Nick who left the meeting earlier than I expected) flyers for my new documentary film called "An Inconvenient Tooth". Thank you Sam and Amanda for telling me that you thought it had a great title.
I would like ask each of you one simple yes or no question. That question is whether or not you intend to watch this film in full before voting on water fluoridation on September 12th. I want to know whether or not you are going to take the time to watch this film before voting on something that will affect almost a million people, many or most of which do not want fluoride added to their water as they have expresed 3 times in public votes on the issue. I would like to know if you are going to honestly listen to the opposition before voting to fluoridate Portland area water for the first time in history.
Please answer "yes" or "no" as soon as you can. If you choose not to answer I will assume the answer is no.
