Justin Fareed is the voice we need in Congress


As with most popular candidates fighting for the people and against the status quo, Justin Fareed has received the brunt of some distasteful and inaccurate assertions. So, let’s clear some things up.

To begin, Justin is far from the establishment candidate in this race — especially when compared with Katcho Achadjian, who has been endorsed by every political insider in California. By looking at his site, you will find that Justin, in contrast, has been endorsed by leaders known for challenging the establishment and successfully defending the voices of their constituents.

It’s also important to note that while certain individuals lie about Justin’s fundraising, Katcho and Salud Carbajal continue to finance their campaigns largely from outside donors. So, not only do they fail to talk to the people of this district, they fail to raise a majority of their funds from it.

Ultimately, Fareed is the most genuine and passionate candidate running. So instead of listening to blatant mudslinging from the establishment candidates’ network, look at the facts. I’m confident that you will understand why Fareed has earned support from every demographic along the Central Coast, making him the voice we need in Congress.
