Healthy Kids, Healthy Portland, the political action committee advocating a “yes” vote on Measure 26-151 which would fluoridate Portland’s water, reported more large contributions today.
Healthy Kids got $50,000 from the Washington Dental Service Foundation; a $25,000 in-kind contribution from the Northwest Health Foundation and $5,000 from the Oregon Medical PAC.
Those contributions follow a huge cash influx earlier this week. The Northwest Health Foundation’s latest contribution brings that group’s total support this year to $191,000.
As of today, Healthy Kids has raised $559,000 and has $182,000 on hand. Clean Water Portland, the political action committee which opposes fluoridation, has raised $111,000 and has $47,000 on hand.
Ballots will be counted on May 21.
