RADIO PROGRAM. To listen live or hear previous programs, go to:


ELEMINATE TRAFFIC CONGESTION. Our current mass transit system does not pick us up where we are or take us all the way to where we are going. It is disconnected and difficult to use. So most of us don’t use it. Most local buses are mostly empty most of the time. This is a waste of tax money and a failure to deliver services. Too many of us drive SOV, filling up the roads. Transit center parking is maxed out. Mass transit will be a limited success unless we solve the last problem and develop an easy way to get to and from the mass transit. The solution is vans summoned by Uber cell phone technology, delivering us from home to transit centers and local destinations. It should be possible to get around without owning a car. If elected I will apply for appointment to transit boards.


DO NOT DRINK LYNNWOOD WATER. So-called fluoride added to our water is smokestack scrubbed, toxic waste filth from fertilizer production. It contains lead and arsenic. It leaches lead from plumbing. Fluoridation adds around 3 trillion atoms of lead to each quart of water. Fluoride harms the growing fetus, children, and the aged most. It lowers IQ. It is expense. There are better ways to prevent tooth decay. Most fluoridated water is flushed right into drains and then after treatment into streams, where it kills salmon. Fluoridation is a chemical company scam to sell filth for a profit. It is medical quackery. Those who support it are either suckers or fraudsters. Lynnwood can demand and could receive uncontaminated water from Everett.


BAN ROUNDUP IN LYNNWOOD. Roundup is a type 2A carcinogen, a confirmed carcinogen in animals and therefore a probable carcinogen in humans. Roundup kills fish. The city of Lynnwood and Lynnwood residents apply vast quantities of Roundup. It flows into streams and Sound, killing salmon. Other countries are banning Roundup.


ORGANIC GOLF COURSE. The money losing Lynnwood golf course applies highly toxic herbicides and fungicides to the course. These flow into streams and Sound. Labels admit these chemicals are “toxic to fish”. Martha’s Vineyard has a profitable organic golf course, and we should too.



Roundup kills salmon. Fluoride kills salmon. Golf course chemicals kill salmon. We want to save the salmon, but we poison them. Lynnwood could ban use of these chemicals under general zoning laws.


HOUSE THE HOMELESS. Housing the homeless is the right thing to do. And it costs less than detox centers, emergency rooms, shelters, and jails. Once housed, they are much more likely to get their lives together, earn money, and get clean. We should find funding and house the homeless without insisting that they be clean and sober as a prerequisite.


BUILD A FIBER OPTIC INTERNET. Comcast charges high prices for slow connections. Mount Vernon set up its own internet utility and now sells one gigabyte up and one down for $70 per month! It is a high tech business magnet. McGinn wanted it in Seattle. Lynnwood should do it.


SMART METERS, 5G ARE COMING. Smart meters blast out powerful microwave pulses every five seconds, reporting via poorly secured, hackable, cell signal to the PUD, which will collect data on your every electrical usage and sell it to marketers. They raise utility bills, catch fire, repel birds and insects. Seattle is installing them now to great opposition. For some the effect is debilitating. WHO says microwaves are Type 2B carcinogens. Schools and businesses should hard wire. Routers should be discouraged. High frequency G5 on every block will fry us all. Total microwave exposure is the issue.


ROLL BACK COMMERCIAL SERVICE AT PAINE. Alaska Airlines is setting up service at Paine Field. There are no limits on new carriers coming in or the number of flights. Within 20 years Paine Field will be SeaTac North. We will need a mega airport because SeaTac is maxing out. McChord is the best alternative. Extend Light Rail nine miles south of Tacoma to McCord. Once on Light Rail, you are almost at SeaTac or McChord.


LOWER THE VOTING AGE TO 17. Isle of Man, Austria, GuernseyJersey, Ecuador, Argentina, Nicaragua, Brazil, Estonia, and Malta all allow 16 and 17 years olds to vote.


ORGANIC SCHOOL GARDENS. The City Council has no jurisdiction over schools. However, I would use my position to encourage all schools to start year-round gardens. The cost is minimal. The educational value is great. All schools have room for gardens. Kids need to eat more vegetables. I am a gardener and a cook. I have recipes that will make kids crave vegetables.

    I read your website about the fluoride class action with re-newed hope that someone like yourself and other high profile people are fighting against the fluoridation of drinking water. The health impact of fluoridation is devastating enough but to learnt that it disproportionately effect the Black and Hispanic community is even more disgusting.

    We are a small group of people in Northern Ireland who are fighting against the possible fluoridation of our water. At the moment our politicians are not listening to us. Could you please give us some idea of what impact fluoridation is having on the Black and Hispanic communities and any insights into how to proceed with our challenge in Northern Ireland.

    Would you or any of your colleagues be willing to write to our Health Minister and explain to him just what impact fluoridation is having from your experience of dealing with those effected by it. I know you are very busy but this would greatly help our campaign over here.

    Perhaps you could explain how you went about bringing this legal action, what obstacles and arguements you faced and how you overcame them please, to see if we could do something similar over here.

    Thanks very much for your time.

      From James: The fight against adding toxic waste drugs containing lead, arsenic, and hydrogen fluoride to our drinking water is a world wide fight. It is not a communist conspiracy; it is a chemical company conspiracy – to turn toxic waste which would cost a lot of money to dispose of into a dental elixer. See for the full story of how this fraud got started.

  • Audrey Adams

    I wish I could vote for you, Mr. Deal, but while I grew up in beautiful Snohomish County, I now live in King County. Rarely have I ever had the opportunity to vote for such a strong environmental advocate, as you obviously are—and NEVER for county executive! You have done what no other politician in our state, that I’m aware of, has had the courage to do—that is, to vocally and knowledgeably speak out against adding the toxic waste product fluorosilicic acid (inaccurately called “fluoride”) to public drinking water. I sincerely hope that Snohomish County voters recognize the gem of a leader that they could have in you. You have so much to offer and so many refreshing beliefs and ideas! Snohomish County is thirsty for an impeccably honest county executive and you would fill that need perfectly. I wish you the best of luck in your campaign!

  • Kay Jackson

    Thank you for running. Many people don’t seem to realize what is happening to us because of the simple lack of “REAL” food and “CLEAN” water. I believe that most illness is caused by not having these.
    We will be voting for you, good luck!

  • Mr. Deal,

    Thank you for running for County Exec. The Democratic Party Platform includes most of your points, however, I see and hear very little action and discussion on these areas. Senator Maralyn Chase is an exceptional exception.

    Food Inc., was widely viewed… so some of us know Food is Medicine (or can be toxic..) Have you seen Against the Grain ? re Monsanto….

    I schedule speakers in a number of situations and will contact you later …


  • Mahmoud Mansour

    Sure I will Vote for you , You are the best


  • Carol White

    All of James Deal’s ideas are for making our lives better, and from his past actions I know he will fight to

    remove the harmful toxins that we have been exposed to.

    James Deal is an honest, knowledgeable, informed man who will be an excellent County Executive!

    So… for the BEST DEAL, vote for JAMES DEAL.


  • Hello James,

    We need an attorney for a class action lawsuit against Austin City Council members who voted unanimously to continue poisoning Austin residents with fluoride.

    Can you help?

  • Third political parties have no chance of winning elections

    Green Democratic Party of the USA

    I want a plan “B” in case technology does not come to our rescue. As it stand now we are just hoping technology will come to our rescue. There are no sustainable energy sources that will rescue us at our current population levels . Global warming will only be mitigated with extremely stringent emissions policies that reduce our consumption rates.

    We will not continue to see the same energy use per person or services provided to each person by increasing the use of sustainable energy methods and improved efficiency in the use of energy.

    If is false to assume by reducing consumption and by constructing sustainable energy infrastructure and then everything will level out and avoid the collapse of industrial civilization.

    Americans have a right to want zero population growth and this cannot happen due to our national immigration policy.

    2. Ethical population reduction must be a part of any plan to rationally deal with peak oil (the end of cheap oil, natural gas, and coal), global climate change, species decline or extinction, and natural resources depletion.

    3. We must change our ethical standard and agree that the most ethical behavior is to adopt a child and it is a bit less ethical to only have one child or twins. We must help educate women in the world.

    4. Global climate change will only be mitigated with extremely stringent emissions policies that reduce our consumption rates.
    But now 86% of the world’s population lives in countries where the demands made on nature – the nation’s “ecological footprint” – outstrip what that country’s resources can cope with.

    The Global Footprint Network, which calculates earth overshoot day, said it would currently take 1.5 Earths to produce the renewable natural resources needed to support human requirements.

    Climate Change and Population are related.
    The Aspen Institute has estimated that voluntary family planning for all who want it could provide 8 to 15 percent of needed carbon reductions. David Wheeler and Dan Hammer at the Center for Global Development argue that putting climate dollars into family planning programs (to make up for expected shortfalls) compares favorably to many investments in low-carbon technologies.
    In developing countries, more than 220 million women want to avoid pregnancy but are not using modern contraceptives. In developed countries, removing barriers to top-tier, long-acting contraceptives like IUDs and implants dramatically changes the rate of unintended pregnancy.
    In 2014, the vast majority (87 percent) of scientists said that human activity is driving global warming, and yet only half the American public ascribed to that view. And 77 percent of scientists said climate change is a very serious problem. In comparison, only 33 percent of the general public said it was a very serious problem in a 2013 poll.

    Here are some good videos
    Right now in the United States it takes ten calories of oil – seven of them imported – to grow and get to table one calorie of food.

    A new study finds more than 80 percent of the world’s known coal reserves, and about half of gas reserves, must remain unburned in order to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change.

  • Weeding out the psycho-talking the candidates for public office and our US military

    We need to be asking all our candidates and elected officials what they don’t believe in to weed out the psycho-talkers. I do not believe the following these things.

    Do they believe people have actually seen an alien being or space ship/UFO from out-space; notwithstanding that people have seen strange things/lights in the sky that are unexplained.

    Do you believe the AFT officers wanted to kill children at WACO.

    Do they believe some intelligence beings (aliens) from another solar system planted a seed into an Earth animals that evolved in humans (jump starting human evolution), that some our advanced technology was copied from alien space craft that crashed, that the US government has recovered parts of an alien out-space craft, or aliens brought to earth technology that that uses pyramids and/or obelisks to make energy, and do they believe that some intelligence beings are watching humans on Earth and waiting for us to grow more civilized or whatever. And they are communicating with us in code via crop circles.

    Do they believe we will never run out of CHEAP oil.

    Do they believe that Nikola Tesla invented unlimited, free energy and the energy producing, companies are keeping it a secret.

    Do they believe that people can bend spoons with their minds, they can somehow predict what will happen in the future, communicate with dead people, and read other people’s thoughts.

    Do they believe in ghosts, human vanpires, and/or demons. That on a clear night a full moon can makes people loony.

    Do they believe that the US did not really landed a man on the moon, that the holocaust of the Jews did not happened, and that our national income tax is unconstitutional.

    Do they believe that global warming is a myth or is not man-made.

    Do they believe that low levels of fluoride used to prevent tooth decay in our drinking water, is poisoning our citizens.

    Do they believe WACO was a deliberately plan by the FBI to kill children.

    Weirdest Fundamentalist Christian beliefs:
    Do they believe:
    1) Same-sex marriage is an elaborate scheme concocted by lesbians to entrap men.
    2) Gay men wear special rings for the sole purpose of giving innocent straights HIV.
    3) The abortion-mad Chinese eat human fetuses.
    4) Crazed liberals in Illinois want to teach 5-year-olds how to have sex.
    5) Charles Darwin took it all back the day he died.
    6) They are trying to lure your children into Satanism with Harry Potter books.
    9) Birth control pill turns your uterus into a grave littered with teeny-weeny corpses of fully formed babies.
    10) Do they believe babies born with birth defects are God’s “special punishment” for women who have had abortions.
    11) Do they believe that every bad thing that happens is because in the recent decades, God removed his hedge of protection from the United States, in order to punish us for “turning our back on God.” Or removed her hedge of protection…
