Fareed Has What It Takes


I’m supporting Justin Fareed for Congress because I believe that he is the only candidate in this race who will actually represent our voices in Washington. Having been born and raised here in Santa Barbara, Justin truly understands the people of this community and the struggles they face every day. As vice president of his family’s business, he has experienced first-hand the harms caused by the excess burdens imposed on small businesses and, as our congressmember, he will fight against federal overreach and excessive taxes. Justin, also, has a strong foreign policy background that will allow him to support congressional measures that will secure our country from the constant threats arising in the international community. Lastly, he is the only candidate who has a concrete plan to strengthen our economy through budget reform and to keep more money in the hands of the taxpayers. I’m voting for Justin Fareed because I believe that he has what it takes to serve us and the future of our nation well in Congress.
