In 2014 five people gave oral presentations to the Auckland Council. From there it has led to Fluoridation being an item on the Water Strategy with agreement that Fluoride Free Auckland will be consulted. We do not know at this stage if it will get the issue in front of the councillors or not, but it is the first step. Aucklanders need to continue to write to their local councillors and letters to the newspaper as well as posting on blogs etc.
