Unwanted Fareed Fourth

The 4th of July parade in Montecito has always been a friendly, politics-free, community event. Along comes someone like Justin Fared, who not only gets 80 percent of his support from out of state, but he decides at the last minute to slap an unapproved sign onto a parade float. Exactly the kind of politician I don’t want thrown in my face at these events!
