We are a local community coalition, comprised of parents, health practitioners, and environmentally aware citizens dedicated to halting the addition of industrial grade fluoride chemicals (hydrofluorosilicic acid) into the City of Fredericksburg’s water supply. We have acquired enough signatures of registered voters to amend the city charter through a ballot initiative. Therefore this measure will be on the ballot for a special election on November 5th, 2019. This gives the citizens of Fredericksburg the opportunity to vote to stop adding industrial grade fluoride (a unprocessed waste by product of the fertilizer factories) to our municipal water for the health and well-being of our community. We are a non-partisan group and not affiliated with any political party.
A Citizen Makes A Logical “Choice” Against FluoridationOur good friend Mo Saidi came to our ballot celebration and shared how he came to a logical conclusion that our water should not be fluoridated, especially without our consent.
Clean Water Fred Gets On The Ballot!
On May 20th, 2019, the Fredericksburg City Council formally approved the language for the city charter amendment and has called for a special election to be held November 5, 2019. Here’s the official ballot language:
ORDER OF SPECIAL ELECTION FOR
CITY OF FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS
(ORDEN DE ELECCIÓN ESPECIAL PARA
CIUDAD DE FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS)
An election is hereby ordered to be held on November 5, 2019 for the purpose of:
City Charter amendment to add Sec. 11.12, as set forth below:
“Sec. 11.12. – Fluoridation of Public Water Supply Prohibited.
The City of Fredericksburg, including its departments, agents, and contractors, SHALL NOT FLUORIDATE THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY or accept any fluoridated water for use in the City of Fredericksburg public water system, including but not limited to the addition of Hydrofluorosilicic acid, Hexafluorosilicic Acid, Sodium Siliocofluoride, or any other fluoride derivative. The City of Fredericksburg shall not purchase, install, or allow the installation of fluoridation equipment to be used in relation to the City of Fredericksburg municipal water supply or its distribution system. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, the City may accept and use naturally occurring fluoridated water in the City of Fredericksburg public water system.”
This is a big development for us and it signals that our time to reach out to the community is upon us. We’ll be having a formal get together, Texas style, with BBQ and free drinks, where you can meet the Clean Water Fred Team and win some great raffle prizes. We’ll announce it here and on our Facebook page.
The Fluoride Free Wave In Texas
Cities across Texas are shutting down their fluoride pumps. People in the Lone Star State are becoming more aware of the dangers of industrial grade fluoride. The awareness is also part of a great awakening, where people are looking to participate more in local government to make sure that it represents the needs and choices of the community. Some of the cities in Texas that have ceased fluoridation include; College Station, Elgin, San Marcos, Buda, Kyle and Lago Vista. Please join us in doing the same in Fredericksburg.
