Standing Up For Northern Michigan

Meet Neil Friske

Standing Up For Northern Michigan
Neil Friske, born in Petoskey and raised near Charlevoix on the family farm, Friske Orchards, is a respected life-long resident of Northern Michigan. He graduated from Ellsworth High School and spent two-thirds of his life working on and running the family farm. For over a decade, Neil and his brother, Richard Jr., were second-generation partners in the family operation. Currently, Neil owns and operates Friske & Sons Property Management in Charlevoix. When he’s not hard at work, he spends as much time as possible with family. He has four grown sons and is a delighted Opa of three beautiful grandchildren.

Together, We Can Make America Great – Again.

Truly great leaders lead with prayerful wisdom and humility, with a servant’s heart, with a listening ear, with transparency and dedication to those they are serving, with a formidable work ethic, and with an unrelenting conviction to uphold all people’s rights and freedoms. I will be such a leader – for you, for your families, for this beautiful state.

Together, we can put ourselves first – our children, our schools, our communities, our elderly, our veterans, our livelihoods. Together, we can be a voice for the voiceless – upholding the sanctity of life. Together, we can hold the line – against government overreach, against Big Corporation and Big Tech monopolies, against the loss of any and all freedoms. Together, we can make a difference – for our families, for our future, for our state, for everyone. Together, we can dream new dreams – and make them a reality. Together, by God’s grace, we can lead – boldly and relentlessly, with wisdom and conviction, with grace and humility.

This country is in a critical time and we need serious leadership who will fight for our country. #BuildTheWall
In February, I joined some of my colleagues for a trip to the southern border to see the problem first hand and learn from officials what is happening. This is a crisis that our president and his Secretary of Homeland Security have neglected to take action on. We called on the Governor of Michigan to take action by sending down our National Guard to help. She too neglected to do so. We need new leadership now, and I am in total support of President Trump and his border policy. I will continue to sound the alarm on this critical issue!

I had the honor of visiting with men and women from the National Guard and DNR at the amazing Wilderness State Park! Their collaborative project (which is both educational and saves everyone money) would be a great example for other government agencies. Everyone should go check out Wilderness Park! 🌲 ...

Right after taking office, a small minority of Republicans, the original Michigan House Freedom Caucus, voted against seating a Democrat speaker.
Since then, we were punished with lack of committee assignments.
Since then, Republicans on ANY committee have had little success getting anything through to Governor Whitmer’s desk.
Since then, the Democrats have signed into law the most radical agenda in our states history:
👎Millions of YOUR money in corporate handouts, including Chinese organizations
👎Repealed Right To Work
👎Passed several new anti-gun laws
👎Millions for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
👎Created on-demand printing of ballots and 9-day early voting
👎Millions to create ghettos
👎Money for speed ticket cameras
👎Gave Teachers Union rights over school curriculum
👎Made trans “Gender Expression” a civil right
👎Power to seize seniors banks accounts
…THIS IS JUST THE TIP IF THE ICEBERG!

So, do I regret voting NO for a Democrat speaker? Absolutely NOT.
Do I regret not accepting scraps of legislation in return for voting ‘yes’ on the garbage listed above? Absolutely NOT.
Do I want a seat at Whitmer’s table that is passing these radical laws? Absolutely NOT.

People can try to spin my 100% Conservative voting record as a “bad” thing. But the truth will prevail, and the truth is that the Democrats didn’t hesitate implementing their rein of terror on our State because a Republican gave them a ‘yes’ vote here or there. I still have NOT received special interest money that has plagued our state for years and am proudly funding my campaign by patriots like you.

I swore an oath, and promised to STAND UP FOR YOU: We The People of Northern Michigan, and that is exactly what I’ve done.

Join Team Friske for my re-election in November, and let’s save this state. 🇺🇸

Thank you Donald J. Trump for coming to Michigan! The People of Michigan are ready to come together to save our great country, which is in a downward spiral due to terrible, weak leadership and bad policy from Biden and Whitmer. I stand strong for our founding principles and stand strong behind President Trump! 🇺🇸
