Meet all 3 Republican Congressional Candidates!
Monday, February 17th, 6-8 PM @ Rusty’s Pizza (Upper State)
In our 24th Congressional District, we have three Republican candidates who are hoping to be the candidate in November to help defeat our Democrat incumbent Lois Capps! Until just recently, our district was a heavily gerrymandered region infamously known as the “Ribbon of Shame,” which guaranteed a safe Democrat seat. However, in 2012 the district was redrawn as a contiguous block around SLO, SB, and a portion of Ventura Counties and we know have a competitive race on our hands! Lois Capps is vulnerable and has to answer for her lockstep votes with her party for Obamacare and many other debacles. This Monday at our YR meeting, find out who has the best chance of defeating Capps and carrying the torch of liberty to Congress. Below are the three candidates who we’ll be hearing from:
Justin Fareed is a YR candidate, being 25 years old, and is a native of Santa Barbara. Justin Fareed is a fiscally conservative and socially moderate Republican who believes in restoring freedom for all Americans. His “Freedom Platform” focuses on making Americans free from debt, free to succeed economically and free from government’s intrusion into individual affairs.
Chris Mitchum is a former Hollywood actor, and son of Robert Mitchum, and appeared in many films with John Wayne. After it was known he was a conservative actor, Hollywood blackballed him from anymore roles so he worked overseas doing numerous films. Chris’ political “training” came in his first six years on the Board of Directors at the Screen Actors Guild. He also served two years as National 1st VP – the same political training ground as SAG President Ronald Reagan.
Dale Francisco grew up in Irvine, California. He came to Santa Barbara in 1979, and earned degrees in Computer Science and English at UCSB. As a software engineer and manager he has worked with several computer networking companies, most notably Cisco Systems. In 2007, frustrated with the direction of the city was headed, he ran successfully for a seat on City Council.
Food and drinks will be available for purchase at Rusty’s Pizza. The first half of the meeting you will hear from all three candidates for 15-20 minutes each, followed by a Q&A portion. Afterwards we will be hosting an endorsement election with all official YR members. If you are not yet a YR member, please sign up here.
Non YR members are welcome to attend the event for free.
