On Monday, November 26, Renton City Council held a Committee of the Whole meeting on water fluoridation at the Renton City Hall, Council Chambers, 7th floor, 1055 S. Grady Way, Renton 98057.   The meeting was open to the public, but public comment is not allowed until the regular Council meetings.

The meeting format was:

  • Lys Hornsby, Renton Utilities Systems Director, giving a brief history of F (5 min); starts at 1.20;
  • Mr. Richard Pedlar, Fluoridation Program Manager, Wash State DOH providing their official position on fluoridation of public water supplies (5 min); starts at 5.25;
  • Dr. Bill Osmunson presenting arguments against fluoridation (15 min); starts at 10.50;
  • Dr. Payton Gaunt, Pediatrician in Renton, supporting fluoridation (3 min); starts at 26.30;
  • Dr. Moffett Burgess, Chief Dental Officer, Seattle-King County Public Health presenting arguments for fluoridation (15 min); starts at 28.00;
  • Q & A period for Council members

I am very proud of Renton City Council members for having the open-mindedness to hold this meeting. These are good people who want to do the best for their citizens and they must ALWAYS be treated with the utmost respect. We are in the process of educating them and are extremely grateful that they have given us the opportunity to do so by inviting Dr. Osmunson to present to their council members. Please be 100% supportive in their quest to learn, even if many (perhaps most) of the council still believes that the BOH and CDC is telling them the truth, that fluoridation is supposedly safe. We need to be the sane and scientific half of the equation at all times.
