The addition of fluoride to Seward’s water supply was not imminent since we had no cost estimates or engineering, but the issue has arisen due to the election. Fluoride has proponents and opponents, both very passionate about their positions on the issue. To me it is not about who is right or who is wrong. It really boils down to what is right for the community as a whole.
Council member Jean Bardarson and I are seeking a compromise where there will be NO FLUORIDE added to the city’s water supply, but where people desiring fluoride will be able to access it. We hope to get support from the rest of the members of council.
Politics these days seems to thrive on divisiveness and polarization. Seward doesn’t have to be that way. It is a great community with great people and we have many more important issues to work towards together. Thank you.
