Justin Fareed was a 2014 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 24th Congressional District of California.[1]


Fareed is a cattle rancher and currently serves as Vice President for his family's business, Pro Band Sports Industries, Inc. He holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science from UCLA. After graduation, Fareed worked with the UCLA football coaching staff. He then served as a legislative aide to Congressman Ed Whitfield.[2]


Campaign themes


Fareed's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Government Debt: "Our government cannot continue to spend more than it takes in. If we stay on the current fiscal path, our country won’t be able to afford the promises it’s made in the past or pay for the investments needed for the future. We need to reduce wasteful spending and Congress must come together to achieve fiscal sustainability and generational equality."
  • Environment: "As a third generation cattle rancher, I was raised to conserve resources and respect the environment while protecting private property rights. The great natural beauty of California’s Central Coast needs to be conserved without jeopardizing the economic vitality of the Central Coast’s most important industry: Agriculture."
  • Taxes: "Our current tax system is broken and needs to be simplified. Taxpayers should not be punished because Congress cannot control its spending. My focus will be on helping Main Street, not Wall Street and I will work to reduce tax rates on working families and small businesses."
  • Health Care: "Every American deserves access to quality health care at fair prices. The broken promises of Obamacare are an example of what happens when big government tries to fix a problem. I will work for health care reform that protects patient choice, keeps costs manageable, and gives everyone the ability to acquire the health care they need and the health insurance they want."
  • Immigration: "I support immigration reform that strengthens families, expands economic opportunity, and maximizes our public safety. I will support reforms that secure borders, that treat everyone in a fair and humane manner, and that maintain America’s standing as a worldwide beacon of opportunity. I support a robust, fair and enforceable guest worker program, especially for our farms and agricultural industries."
