‘Young Gun’ Justin Fareed Recognized by National Republican Congressional Committee

The National Republican Congressional Committee recognized Justin Fareed’s campaign efforts in the 24th Congressional District Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015. Fareed has been elevated to "On the Radar" status in the committee’s Young Guns program.

Young Guns identifies candidates nationwide who demonstrate the potential to run a successful campaign. Originally founded in the 2007-08 election cycle, the program supports and mentors challenger and open-seat candidates in races across the country.

Fareed is running for the open seat left by Lois Capps’ retirement. 

“Every day as I travel the district to meet with voters at town halls, meet and greets and community events, I continue to hear the same thing: Voters are tired of career politicians who care more about their next election than the next generation,” Fareed said. “I am so grateful for the swell of grassroots support our campaign has received, and I will continue to work hard to build an operation that can successfully deliver a new voice for the Central Coast.”

Fareed is the second highest fundraiser in the race to replace Capps.

He is a third generation cattle rancher and currently serves as vice president of his local family-owned business, Pro Band Sports Industries, Inc. He was a UC Los Angeles football running back and coach before serving under Congressman Ed Whitfield as a legislative aid.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
