Victory In Texas
San Marcos residents voted in favor of a measure to forbid the city from adding fluoride to the municipal water supply.
With all precincts counted, about 61 percent, or 1,814, voted for Proposition 1, and 39 percent, or 1,173, voted against.
Anti-fluoride activists initially came out against the proposition as it is worded on the ballot, saying the wording gives the city a loophole to purchase already-fluoridated water. However, the group, Communities for Thriving Water Fluoride-Free San Marcos, later decided to support it. The proposition says the city “shall not add, or direct or require its agents to add fluoride” to the city’s water.
