Long-time fluoridation opponent said the community poll on water fluoridation is causing public anxiety and she is open to Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams' offer of taking the discussion to the state government table for debate instead. Her proposal will go to the September council meeting.

Long-time fluoridation opponent, Port Macquarie-Hastings deputy mayor Lisa Intemann, has responded to MP Leslie Williams' statements this week by agreeing to negotiate directly with NSW Health rather than continue the push for a community poll at the December council elections.
