Seven groups have now joined an effort to overturn a state Supreme Court ruling dealing with fluoride in the Port Angeles water.

They’re supporting Port Angeles based “Our Water-Our Choice!” and “Protect Our Waters” in a request the court reconsider its denial of allowing two initiatives on the ballot.

The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Fluoride Action Network, Oregon Citizens for Safe Drinking Water, Washington Action for Safe Water, Whidbey Environmental Action Network, Protect the Peninsula’s Future, and Clallam County Citizens for Safe Drinking Water signed on to the petition for reconsideration.

Last month, the state’s high court ruled 5-4 it agreed with the Port Angeles city council that the two initiatives filed in 2006 concerned administrative matters and fell outside the scope of the initiative process.
