Brian Friend For Congress

Say No To The Progressive Agenda.

Born in Akron Ohio, 1966, I lived in the city of Akron and attended public schools. My Father was a hard-working blue-collar man, working at BF Goodrich building tires. My mother was a nurse at Akron City Hospital. I am a first-generation college graduate. My mother and father separated when I was the age of 4. Raised by my mother, I have nothing but respect and admiration for her, I seen firsthand the hard work she faced raising 2 children on $2.00/hr. She taught me hard work, principles, tenacity, and respect. I was a top athlete in the state during high school, went to a Pro football combine in 1998. I believe in continually educating myself, working out, and discipline! I am strong Christian in faith. Doing the right things regardless of backlash or peer pressure. Integrity and strong faith in God are the most important qualities I possess. I am a revolved-republican and my views have become conservative. Born and raised in Ohio during the 60’s and 70’s everyone was blue collar hard working and considered democrats, and as have become older life’s wisdom has brought me to the Republican Party, why? Because I believe in doing right.

I moved to Kure Beach North Carolina 1987, receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in accounting from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington (1997) while washing trucks for $4.50/hr. Started to develop my insurance business in 1998 got it up and running in 2002. I also worked in construction business a couple of years to help finance my insurance agency. I see the importance of job creation, expanding a business and the impact it has on the community. Raised by a single mother, I understand loyalty to my employees I allowed for the children to be brought into the office because a mother needs to be the one raising her children. The most important element society has been the lacking is parental guidance and care. I put everything I had into creating my business, faced many obstacles. The average person that just collects a weekly check can never understand the pressures, barriers, and commitment owners must have, long hours for basically no pay at times. I have been able to maintain my focus building my business while raising a daughter and guiding her to the Air Force all while earning 2 Master’s Degrees, graduating Summa Cum Laude.

I decided to run for US Congress because I know I am the best overall choice. I see no leadership or loyalty by the current occupant! Any of the other candidates don’t have the personal experience with the issues we face and no ability to fix the problems this country is facing. Nothing has been done to aid Americans Left behind by President Joe Biden, Americans are stranded in Yemen and Afghanistan. After 4 years of obstacles, President Trump faced no support, basically most Republican politicians washed their hands of him. With all the issues we are dealing with by the current administration, nothing! Are things getting better? Or worse? Under our current Congressman nothing is being done. Our President calls a young man defending himself a racist and terrorist. Our congressman sits idle even though 12 Jurors found him innocent of all charges. The other candidates have no experience to deal with pressure, one Ivy League kid the other Military, no disrespect but we see this year in and year out. I bring a complete package of experience, education, ability to handle problems head on and a proven track record of building a business from scratch and dealing with major issues. Perfect example of leadership, I coached the Semi-Pro football in southeast North Carolina Port City Thunder, Port City Diesel, (both Wilmington) and the Port City Chargers (Southport) leading the Chargers to the NAFL National Championship game in 2008. I compiled a 34-7 record mostly from inheriting losing teams. I helped kids get into college, play football in Europe and put one in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. I have leadership!

I am
Pro God,
Pro Military,
Pro Law Enforcement,
Pro 2nd Amendment

I am for school choice, public schools are getting way off base and contaminating our children, I believe parents have a right to determine what should be taught in schools, I don’t believe the government has a right to take away the parents right to have an opinion.

Keeping Jobs in America is essential, we also have to maintain affordable housing. The current administration’s policies, have already created inflation. Cost of living is being pushed above a survivable range.

Healthcare (the marketplace is a joke) mandates have to be lifted to push prices down to make more affordable. If it is so great, why are we forced to buy it? In Japan and Canada patience have to wait a year to see a doctor, it’s only going to get worse without reform

Vaccination, worst case numbers have Covid survival rate above 98%. I believe the individual has the right to decide what’s best for them, Government has no right to force people to have vaccination. Mask should also be up to an individual, If the vaccination works so well, why should un vaccination people have to wear a mask? If the vaccinations do harm us, we can’t pursue legal action!

New Revise Tax Reform is essential to help hard working Americans. We need to modify the standard deduction- exemption, this destroys the single person as well as the families with children that are trying to buy homes. Medical expenses, and non-reimbursed working expense, are just a few issues that need to be addressed.

Why should you vote for me? You may not realize it but we are at war, the war between right and wrong. A war against working class Americans vs those who refuse to work! The problem isn’t another nation it’s domestic! We have an enemy so hateful, if you don’t agree with them, you’re a racist, a bigot, or a homophobic! An enemy that will lie, cheat, steal, and manipulate every situation to get what they want, not concerned for your beliefs or well-being!

We are in a society where a real man can’t be a man and our children are being manipulated, expose, and brainwashed! Do we want our children or grandchildren to suffer because of my lack of action! The current Congressman and candidates may be good people, I am not bashing anyone, but if we walked into a dark alley, I will be the one walking out! I am old-school with old-school values! I possess a strong work ethic and loyalty! Built my business from scratch, been in business 20 years, also have helped dozens establish and advise them on business plans that have made them successful! Have dealt personally with every major issue we face today! Immigration, taxes, health insurance and the positive and negative effects these issues have had on the economy! Educated Master’s Degrees in Forensic Accounting and Advanced Taxation, I possess a Property & Casualty License, Health and Life Insurance License in the states of North Carolina. Also, an Enrolled Agent authorized to practice before the Internal Revenue Service. I am strong-willed and integrity is important to me! I want the best for our women and children. I love America and want to do my part I am here to offer you a candidate
that will get things done! The others talk the talk, I walk the walk!
