India Post News Service

McCANDLESS PA: Dr. Arvind Venkat announced his candidacy last February for Pennsylvania’s 30th State House District with the launch of his campaign website, www.venkatforpa.com, and social media pages. In March, Venkat qualified for the ballot by submitting hundreds of signatures from across the district, after knocking on more than 2,000 doors.

Venkat came to the USA as a young baby with his South Asian parents, who settled in Michigan.

“I became an ER doc because I knew that I would be caring for any patient that walked through the door at any time, no questions asked,” said Venkat. “There’s no such thing as a Democratic or Republican heart attack. I’m running for the State House because we need leaders in Harrisburg who can put aside partisan differences and deal with the crises at hand. In Harrisburg, I will fight to bring resources back to our communities to improve local infrastructure, bolster strained public services, and ensure that healthcare is affordable and accessible for all Pennsylvanians.”

Venkat is an attending emergency physician with Allegheny Health Network where he serves as core faculty in the emergency residency program at Allegheny General Hospital and System Chair of Clinical Ethics.

He is a past President of the Pennsylvania College of Emergency Physicians, serves on the board of the McCandless-Franklin Park Ambulance Authority, and is a consultant to the Western Pennsylvania Autism Services, Education, Resources, and Training collaborative.
