The long-running reality show known as Measure 26-151, which would require the fluoridation of Portland’s water supply, draws to a close today.
Ballots are due at Multnomah County elections or official ballot drop spots by 8 pm this evening.
Filings today show that the Northwest Health Foundation contributed another $30,000 to the pro-fluoride campaign, Healthy Kids, Healthy Portland, bringing that group’s total to $285,000. That is more than the “no” campaign, Clean Water Portland, raised from all sources.
As of this morning, Healthy Kids, Healthy Portland has raised $877,000 with a $107,000 remaining on hand; Clean Water Portland has raised $274,000 with $12,000 remaining on hand.
As of 2 pm yesterday, turnout stood at 25.75 percent.
