Welcome to the official Michael Frend for Congress website. Please browse the site and learn about Michael and why he is running for Congress. Feel free to contact Michael with any questions or concerns you may have. Michael is running as an independent because he feels that both Republicans and Democrats have been unable to pass any meaningful legislation due to partisan politics. The people of the 6th Congressional District of Virginia deserve better than that. Please get to know Michael Frend and visit him in one of many Town Hall meetings to be held all over the district over the next several months.

Michael Frend responds to President Trumps Shithole comments

President Trump used "shithole" to describe other nations that we sometimes get refuges from. This comment is very unbecoming and not presidential. These comments are very detrimental to our diplomatic efforts around the globe. It is very obvious that our president does not understand diplomacy. His random rants are dangerous as they create hatred and distrust towards Americans abroad.
They are also racist comments that basically say we are okay with white immigrants coming to American but not blacks from Haiti or Africa. This is not what America stands for. We are a nation founded and based on immigration. How can we be okay with that type of statement from the POTUS.
We risk becoming the "shithole" nation if this is truly where we are headed with immigration. I am surprised that so far most republican congressional members have failed to stand up against these racist comments made by our commander in chief. Republican Congressman Goodlatte who was present for the comments has made no comment. What type of leadership is that. Sir, you should stand up for what you know is right. I hope for better from you.

Also, in reference to the 6th Congressional district, I find it appalling that the Republican party will nominate by convention rather than allowing the voters to have a voice and choose their candidate. Your party has sidestepped every normal method since Trump came into power. You have become the party of exclusion rather than inclusion.
We are losing our leadership standing in the world. We are falling behind in medicine and education to even third world countries. Just how damaging the "shithole" comments will be is yet to be seen. The GOP needs to correct the President when he is wrong just like you would anyone else.

Statement on President Trumps DOJ comments

We continue as a nation to drive wedges between our political parties. The discord in Washington only gets worse. Bi-partisanship is a lost thought. The Republican party continues to slam items through that vastly affect low income  families. They continue to allow MILLIONS of children to go without health care that they were responsible for ending. 

The democrats are doing no better. The continue to spend their days complaining about the republican leadership. I have done that myself. But they have the power still to force things to happen. They could have allowed the Federal Government to shut down without funding it to force Republicans to reinstate childrens health care, but they did not. 

President Trump has insulting and attacking the integrity of our Judicial system. The integrity of our FBI and legal system is sound. We have checks and balances in place to catch and correct problems. It has worked very well for more than 200 years. Yet Trump wants us to believe they are corrupt and out to get him. 

President Trump is acting very unstable and unbecoming a President. Presidents to not bait and attack others on social media. Presidents do not argue policy and diplomacy on social media. This is only the 5th of January and it already seems like a year. Our justice system will prevail as it has always done. I give my unwavering support of our Justice system and the FBI. I believe the police, sheriffs and all others in law enforcement and firefighters and EMTS do one hell of a job. Volunteer or paid you guys are the best thank you.

The time has come to get the campaign into high gear. I will be out and about over the next few weeks all over the district collection signatures required to be on the ballot. Look forward to seeing you all soon. Also there is always room for a few good volunteers to assist in the signature collecting. Training provided. Also looking for some volunteer staff workers as well. Hope everyone has enjoyed the start to their new year. We face many issues as a nation right now. Together we can overcome all of them.


God Bless America and your families.

GOP loses majority in Virginia

Yesterday a single vote changed the course of Virginia politics. Your vote really does matter and that is the proof. One single vote can and did change the power of politics for a whole state. 

The GOP has lost touch. They have lost their moral high ground. They operate for special interest lobbyists, the NRA and corporate money.  They have let the power of money steer them wrong. Yesterday's change of power with more recounts to come should be a wake up call. 

We need the elected officials to be for the people not for the corporations or for those who donate large amounts of money. We the people vote not corporations and that GOP is why you have lost your morals and majority.

Now we intend to do the same in Congress.  I may be an independent but the GOP is our worse choice.  The democrats also need a better plan for the future. Don't just try to stop Republicans you need to be bipartisan or get out of town. It's time to work together or find another job.

Merry Christmas to the great people of Virginia.
