3 now vying for Snohomish County executive

EVERETT — Attorney James Robert Deal, an activist best known for his opposition to fluoridated drinking water, has entered the race for Snohomish County executive.
Deal, who turns 67 next month, lives in Lynnwood and is running as a Democrat. In the Aug. 5 primary, he will face incumbent Executive John Lovick, a Democrat, and Sultan Mayor Carolyn Eslick, a Republican.
All three filed campaign paperwork with the county auditor last week.
The top two finishers in the primary will compete in the Nov. 4 general election.
Deal, in a news release, said his campaign would focus on raising the minimum wage, “building a fiber optic internet,” lowering the county voting age to 16 and stopping coal trains, among other issues.
Deal, Lovick and Eslick are competing in a special election to fill the year remaining of what would have been the term of Aaron Reardon, the former county executive.
Local Democrats appointed Lovick, who was then the county sheriff, to the post a year ago following Reardon’s resignation.
