Who Made the Decision to Deny the Citizens of Port Orange a Balanced Presentation?

to BobDennisdonDrew, Greg
 …. Manager Kisela,
When Council directed you to set up a workshop on fluoridation  they did not indicate,  in public at least,  that they wanted a one sided presentation.Did they or the Mayor who has strongly favored fluoridation in the past instruct you to prepare the totally biased agenda that you have ?
As I look  through the attached agenda I am left wondering who made the decision to deny the citizens of Port Orange a balanced presentation on this most important topic regarding their long term health ?

    Why is the City Manager wasting everyone’s time on a work shop, with ONLY one point of view?
    I suggest he stop gaming the system and pushing a hidden agenda
    Mr. Manager cancel this work shop and do it right, reschedule with both sides of the story.

    Whether Fluoride should be added to our water is a question with no easy answers. Clearly, fluoride benefits teeth at proper dosages, just as clearly at improper dosages fluoride can be harmful. How to reconcile these two observations should be the topic of tonight’s workshop. Instead, the Public Utilities Department had to put its thumb on the scale and agenda only those supporting fluoride.
    Does our Public Utilities staff believe that council is too dense to make their own decisions so, they will guide us to their decision. They have done council a disservice, any decision we ultimately make will be tainted with the accompanying image of a stacked deck.
