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