Candidate’s Voters Guide Statement:

Elected Experience: Art is a top competitor, finishing 3rd in Washington’s 2012 U.S. Senate Primary; PCO

Other Professional Experience:
Dr. Art Coday, patient advocate, understands critical healthcare issues.  He does house calls and nursing home care for Medicare (seniors, disabled), Medicaid (poor), and uninsured, and is a physician to firefighters.  He spent six years in heart research.

Education: Art graduated from Lakeside School, UW (B.S., Cellular and Molecular Biology; honors, magna cum laude), and Harvard Medical School.

Community Service: Art volunteered at Seattle Children’s Hospital Summer Camp six years, working with special needs children. He served on nonprofit boards (private school (Treasurer, President); large physician organization (Finance)). 

Statement: Art, a statesman, will work for Washington State, not Washington D.C.

Unlike his opponent, who has a long but lackluster record as a partisan career politician, Art will not take orders from party bosses, donors, and lobbyists in D.C. Instead, Art will meet regularly with you, his constituents, and with the Washington State Legislature and Governor. In this nonpartisan way, we will accomplish major victories including making our commute times shorter and safer, preparing for catastrophic natural disasters, and cleaning up nuclear waste at Hanford.

A career in medicine, not politics, allowed Art the privilege of serving patients from all walks of life, including seniors, the poor, and people of various cultural, economic, social, and racial backgrounds. Dr. Art Coday, a leader, upholds the sanctity of human life and will fight for healthcare reform that focuses on access, affordability, aging, the poor, mental illness, substance abuse, and research. In contrast, a career in politics, not medicine, influenced Art’s opponent to vote for legislation that took money from Medicare and dramatically increased your medical costs.

Art, son of a US Navy Captain, salutes veterans and those in uniform! To honor you and defend our liberty, homeland, and ideals, we will ensure that our armed forces remain the world’s finest and most capable. We will make our personnel safer and renew our commitment to care for our wounded warriors, veterans, and military families. It is the least we can do; you bought our freedom.

Safety and prosperity require making our schools safe and housing affordable, protecting constitutional rights, protecting property rights and borders, establishing trade and labor practices that put working Americans first, reducing taxes for all, and balancing the budget.

Art thanks you for your trust and your vote. He will be honored to be your advocate in the Senate.
