Two of the biggest supporters of Measure 26-151, which calls for the fluoridation of Portland’s water supply have kicked in more cash to the Healthy Kids, Healthy Portland campaign.

State filings for today show that the Northwest Health Foundation, the biggest contributor to the campaign, has given another $20,000, bringing its total to $235,000. The Dentists of Oregon PAC kicked in $60,000, bringing that group’s total giving to $98,000.

Healthy Kids, Healthy Portland, the pro-fluoridation group, has now raised $664,000 and has $198,000 on hand. Clean Water Portland, which opposes Measure 26-151, has raised $224,000 and has $24,000 on hand.

Ballots will be counted on May 21.
