Can you tell me what the City Vision Team’s policy is on flouridation of Auckland City’s water? Thanks. Glenda
Hi Glenda. City Vision doesn’t have a policy of flouridation.
Individual candidates have been asked the following question from Fluoride Free Auckland. Candidates have provided their own personal responses
Could you please send a brief statement on your fluoridation position?
Ideally please begin your statement as per the below:
I am FOR ending fluoridation in Auckland because …
I am FOR continuing fluoridation in Auckland because ….
Have any of the City vision candidates actually responded to the question? If so, where are their repsonses? Has this question been sent to the cadidates for the Health board postions?
Here are the responses of candidates who are for ending fluoridation http://www.fannz.org.nz/candidatesauckland.php
Suggest you ask the Fluoride Action network who sent out the survey as to whether the question went to Health Board candidates
