From page A4 | January 23, 2014 |

SUISUN CITY — Suisun City residents will have access to more than Vice Mayor Lori Wilson at her next community forum in March.

They will also be able to ask state Assemblyman Jim Frazier and possibly a Solano County representative questions about state and county issues.

Frazier showed up at Wilson’s most-recent community forum, at The Salvation Army Kroc Center, and promised to attend her next forum, Wilson said Tuesday.

“It was a small crowd, but good conversation,” Wilson said of the forums, which were the fulfillment of a campaign promise she made to be more accessible to her constituents.

The forum will take place from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. March 9 at The Macedonia Church of God in Christ, 425 Walters Road.

    Here's your chance, people, to tell Lori Wilson to vote AGAINST Pol Pot Pete's efforts to put the poison known as fluoride in the drinking water!!

    Flouride has massive public health benefits. If you don't trust me, just wait for your teeth to rot faster. Or better yet, ask your dentist.

    Am I the only one that finds the Pol Pot Pete reference highly offensive?

    @MIster - what a racist reference. Coward move. Not funny and not in good taste. FYI, Pol Pot was Cambodian, Pete Sanchez is American of Filipino decent.

    The moniker Pol Pot Pete came from a Suisun Council meeting a year or so ago. It was on the subject of fluoride and Pete's insistence that it be included, by hook or by crook, in Suisun's drinking water. A young, well-spoken man stood before the panel of "leaders" citing study after study from major universities on the absolute dangers of fluoride in the drinking war. Pete, of course, dismissed everything that had been presented with his air of superiority. This young, handsome man continued on... fact after fact... about the poisonous effects of fluoride in the drinking water and, perhaps as a verbal attention-getter, likened Pete to Pol Pot in his indifference to the health and well-being of his constituents. And that was the beginning of his well-suited moniker, Pol Pot Pete. I find it offensive that you turned this into a racial thing. Are you a racist yourself? Is everything seen in racial terms for you... like Sharpton? And what was Pol Pot really known for... being Cambodian or for killing his people? That you chose Cambodian really tells us something about you.

    I have seen the dismissal attitude also. If Pete is set on his way of ignoring the people who speak in meetings, then he should take the heat for his actions. Bad personal Dental Hygiene is the leading cause of tooth decay. Fluoride in the water will not stop the decay, only barely slow it down. Remember putting in extra products/steps in a system increases costs. Politicians who have ties to rate increases will push extra reasons/justification for raising rates. The Council DOES love their stipends. Hasn't anyone here in Suisun City seen the pattern in voting things through by the City Council? There will always be an alternating system of someone taking sides against or for a important controversial item for the public in front of the Council. Then they vote it in! Of course it is usually before an election.

    Regardless of how the name originated, it's still inappropriate and offensive.
