Entire Platform

I offer specific goals and solutions. My opponents speak in generalities, as if this were a popularity contest.

Salmon Recovery

Roundup, fluoride, fecal waste from feed lots, and mercury coal dust all are destroying salmon runs.

Ban Oil Trains

Oil trains cannot be made safer. They are inherently dangerous. Washington retains Commerce power to ban them.

Ban Smart Meters

Smart meters blast out microwaves. They are security holes into your home. They explode. They are a scam.

$15 Minimum Wage

Phase in a $15 wage. It will help not hurt small business. Capitalism must be made to work for all.

Traffic Congestion

There is a way to eliminate congestion, at low cost, and do so quickly, greatly reducing CO2 emissions.

Lead In Water

The science is very clear: Fluoride leaches lead from plumbing. And it does little good for teeth.

Ban Coal Trains

Coal dust blows from trains. The dust is laden with mercury, which poisons our fish. They should be banned.

Mercury Vaccines

Our Health Department pushes vaccination of pregnant mothers with mercury flu vaccines!

Gigabyte Internet

Mt. Vernon offers a gig up and a gig down for $70 per month. It’s a business magnet. Let’s do it state-wide.

Why Attorney Deal is Running for Governor

There is no one else raising important green, progressive issues. My opponents have experience in office, but they have not used their experience to address such issues. My goal is to make Washington a model for other states a green, progressive state.

Washington Minimum Wage

The minimum wage now is lower than it was in 1968.


I am the issues candidate. My opponents avoid Issues. I am specific about goals. My opponents are not. If you share my goals, vote for me. Otherwise my goals, your goals will not be accomplished.

Inslee Has No Solution For Traffic Congestion

The only solutions to traffic congestion which Governor Jay Inslee offers is completing Link Light Rail and eliminating choke points, both of which will take decades and cost billions. There is a way to eliminate congestion in six months, and which will save money, a way to make it so convenient and fast to use transit that we will be able to leave our cars at home.

Inslee - Clueless About Lead And Fluoride

Many Washington cities add lead-leaching fluoride to our water. It is a witches’ brew of commercial grade toxic waste chemicals which we consume from conception to death. After this vice is ended, we will look back in amazement at ourselves for having believed such a fraud. Jay Inslee supports fluoridation unquestioningly.

Inslee - Weak on Coal Train Issue

Coal is filthy to mine, filthy to burn, and filthy to transport. Coal cars are uncovered and open to the wind. Up to a ton of coal dust – laden with toxic mercury – can blow off each open car during the 1,100 mile trip from Wyoming. Mercury dust is poisoning our fisheries. Burlington Northern is guilty of littering and water pollution, and as governor I would sue to stop these trains.

Inslee - Not Organic

The WHO has declared Roundup to be a proven carcinogen in animals and probable carcinogen in humans. France, Bhutan, and Sri Lanka are banning Roundup. We should too. In 2014 we voted on whether to label GMOs. Governor Inslee would not even take a position on the issue. He is not an environmentalist. He is a Monsanto man.

Ban Smart Meters

Smart meters connect to utilities by cell phone technology. They blast out powerful microwave pulses every five seconds. For some the effect is debilitating, depending on proximity. Smart meters are insecure and open your home to hackers. They raise electric bills. They catch fire.

Washington State Bank

The North Dakota state bank is highly profitable. A Washington State Bank would reduce the cost of bond borrowing, foment business, provide banking for the marijuana industry, and build a recession reserve. Washington should have its own Washington State Bank.

Attorney Analysis of Vaccination

Some vaccines are safe, effective, and cause no adverse reactions. Most are not. Vaccine technology is in a primitive stage of development. The herd immunity theory is bogus because vaccinated children are themselves contagious. The right to Informed consent includes the right to say no.

Inslee - Mandatory Vaccinator

In 2015 pro-vaccine forces tried to pass a mandatory vaccine bill which would have eliminated all religious and philosophical vaccine exemptions, despite the fact that most vaccines are ineffective and some harmful. Governor Jay Inslee supported the bill.

White Skies Over Lynnwood

There is something strange going on above us. If you look up you will see unnatural white jet trails on some days, filling the sky and turning into a white haze. Maybe these chemtrails are harmless. Maybe they are not. We deserve answers.

Quit Poisoning the Salmon

Both fluoride and Roundup repel and kill salmon. Salmon are especially sensitive to fluoride. They must switch from excreting salt while in the ocean to absorbing salt – including fluoride salts – while in fresh water. Roundup ties up minerals, thus killing needed bacteria in the digestive system and interfering with digestion. It does the same in humans.

Close Hanford Nuclear Plant

The nuke at Hanford is the same model as the Fukushima reactors which exploded in 2011. It is dirty, dangerous, and expensive. It regularly vents radioactive gasses. It is located downstream from earthen dams which could fail in an earthquake. It could flood and catch on fire. It could be the next Oso, but a million times worse. Close it down.

Build a Fiber Optic Internet

What does Mount Vernon have that most of the rest of Washington lacks? Internet speeds of one gigabite up and down for only $70 per month. Mount Vernon set up a city utility which delivers fiber optic speeds. I would encourage Washington PUDs to do the same.

House the Homeless

Housing the homeless is the right thing to do. And it is much less expensive than the alternative: frequent and costly visits to emergency rooms, shelters, drug counseling, and jails. No one should be sleeping in cars, tents, or cardboard boxes. Once they are housed, the homeless are much more likely to improve their lives.


My book is all about food, how we can grow our own food, how to cook it. It is about how diet relates to health, history, ethics, religion, and climate change.

Paine Field - No Commercial Service

If one airline sets up service at Paine Field, others can too. Paine Field will be SeaTac North. SeaTac has no room for expansion.We need a mega airport, but the best place for it would be McChord. Extend Light Rail nine miles sourth of Tacoma to McChord. Once on Light Rail, you are almost at SeaTac or McChord. Air service at Paine Field is unnecessary.

Toxic Golf Courses Should Go Green

Golf courses dump hundreds of pounds of toxic pesticides each year on our golf courses, and much of this flows into creeks and into Puget Sound, where they kill fish. There are green golf courses. How can we say we want salmon runs to recover when we dump fish poison into their streams?

Trapped in a Maze

So-called fluoridation is a complete fraud. Our governor and our Department of Health have been duped. They have chosen to believe those who have no evidence and to disbelieve those who have evidence. They are trapped in a maze and thus far unable to find the exit.

Leaders Bamboozled

Fluoridation can add 10 trillion atoms of arsenic per liter of tap water, up to 3 trillion atoms of lead. It leaches even more lead from plumbing. But dupes wearing white coats say fluoridation is safe and effective. Our governor and our health departments believe them. They have been bamboozled.

Sign Up For Emails

Helping me win votes is easy. Sign up for emails. Stay informed. Learn about the issues. Print out my fliers and hand them out to anyone and everyone, whenever you feel it appropriate.

Bail Bond Scandal

If the accused can arrange bail, he gets to go home and back to his job. If he cannot, he stays in jail, does not see his family, and loses his job. The accused should remain in jail if dangerous or a flight risk, or released if not – perhaps wearing an electronic monitor.

Video - League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters held a forum at the Lynnwood Library on July 22, 2015, when I was running for Snohomish County Executive. I raised important issues, which my standard politician opponents ignored – as usual.
