It's time to evaluate, decide, and VOTE. Dunedin Patch is reporting. Pass it on. Tell your Dunedin neighbor to get involved and take action. Read, do your homework, comment, voice your opinion and VOTE!

Mayor Eggers distinguished himself this year claiming to know more than the entire scientific, medical and dental community by his failed attempt to remove fluoride from Dunedin's water. He was joined by Julie Bujalski, whom we unfortunately can't vote out of office this time around. Dunedin's water -- and its progressive agenda -- are among the best in Tampa Bay. Let's keep the fluoride and dump fossils such as Eggers. And Bugalski, when we can.

Mayor Eggers and Julie Bujalski have my votes! I hope those who have chosen to force fluoridation on Dunedin citizens will be voted out of office. Only the salesmen were allowed into the meetings; not those who assiduously studied the issue and concluded fluoridation would not be in the citizens' best interest. If so many people are in favor of fluoride (not that it is pure elemental fluoride or even the same fluoride compound that occurs naturally in some drinking water that is being added to the water; and not that it is only fluoride being added to the water), why has a citizen vote by referendum been bypassed? Thank you, Mayor Eggers and Julie Bujalski, for respecting Dunedin citizens!!!
