Wichita: Remove Vice-Mayor Janet Miller
Remove Vice-Mayor Janet Miller
Wichita’s Vice-Mayor Janet Miller has made her position on the issue of water fluoridation crystal clear, as well as her contempt for public-opinion on numerous issues. She’s advocated for the forced-medication of Kansas’ largest city and would do so again.

“Only one council member, Janet Miller, argued to adopt the [fluoride] ordinance outright. But she eventually made the motion and joined the unanimous vote to put it to a vote.”
“According to Vice Mayor Janet Miller, Wichita needs to ‘join the 21st century.’ But even if the City Council did vote to immediately climb on board the ‘F’ Train, ironically, they would have found themselves still out of step with the times – more and more cities have abandoned or are fighting to end this out-dated mode of ‘health care’.”
“Is ‘Community Water Fluoridation’ like iodized salt? According to Wichita City Council Member and Vice Mayor Janet Miller, we didn’t vote on whether to put iodine in table salt, so Wichitans don’t need to vote on whether to add fluoride to drinking water. There’s a distinguishing factor, however, that somehow Miller didn’t realize: Consumption of iodized salt is a voluntary act. Not so with fluoridated water.”
“If you do the math and its not going to pass, it doesn’t make sense beating your head against a wall,” said Wichita Council member Janet Miller. “So you go ahead with the next best thing.”

“Vice-mayor Janet Miller and council member Pete Meitzner wanted to take action to add fluoride, but Miller admitted there wasn’t enough support on the council, so she moved to put the issue on the November ballot.”
“Council member Janet Miller argued that fluoridation has been proven safe and effective in preventing tooth decay and that the city should skip the vote and, ‘Join the 21st Century’.”
“Public water fluoridation is absolutely a no brainer.”
“Only one council member on Friday – Janet Miller – said outright that she would support an ordinance to fluoridate Wichita’s water.”
“Earlier this summer Eyewitness News asked council members about their stance on adding fluoride to the water. At the time, Mayor Carl Brewer, Lavonta Williams, and Pete Meitzner said they were undecided. James Clendenin, Jeff Longwell, and Michael O’Donnell said they were leaning against it. And Janet Miller said she fully supports the idea.”
“Vice Mayor Janet Miller is the most vocal fluoride supporter on the nine-member city council.”
“One council member, Vice Mayor Janet Miller, supports fluoridation and is ready to discuss it from the council bench. ‘It’s one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century, and Wichita is one of the remaining few large cities in the country that has not fluoridated its water supply,’ she said. ‘We have a very high rate of dental decay, and there’s definitely a relationship.‘”
“The city council would eventually have to decide if fluoride is right for Wichita. It’s one of a few large cities in the country without it. ‘I think it’s time for us to have the discussion again,’ says council member Janet Miller.”
