One Vote Definitely Mattered


In the early 60′ I was already opposed to fluoridation in our water as NYC was considering adding it to our water supply. I was also a member of our local Democratic Club that was organized to reform politics in our city. Ed Koch led this movement. We were selecting candidates to run for State Assembly and Senate. I asked one of the prospective candidates about his views on fluoridating NYC water. He was strongly for it. So when our club voted to make a selection I voted against this individual. He lost by one vote, mine. He never ran for political office again.
