Power of One Vote


In the 1950s when I was a young mother and quite interested in care and feeding of my two sons I learned about the hazards of fluoride in our water supply and became active in the move to have it not put into NYC water supply. At the same time I joined a political club in our Jackson Heights neighborhood. The JFK Reform Democratic Club. There we were selecting individuals to run for political office.
I got to know the individuals running for state government positions.Our nominee was very much in favor of fluoridating NYS water. We held the election and that individual lost by one vote. He was not put on the ballot. Nor did he go to Albany.

Fluoridating public water continues to be a debate. We are taking the fight to remove it from public water . And Robin Warwick and I will be speaking at the Auburndale Improvement Association on Tuesday evening after you have all voted At St.Kevin’s Parish in Auburndale (Flushing) Queens.
