Republican Nick Freitas visited the Eastern Shore Monday at the Club Car in Parksley.

Frietas told the gathering he believed that more government is not the answer to every problem. Frietas said that while government has it’s place,  it’s main function is to ensure that all Americans have their rights to live, liberty and the pursuit of happiness protected and that many problems can better be solved through private enterprise versus large government bureaucracies.

Frietas is an Army veteran and served as a green beret in the Middle East.  Frietas is from Culpepper Virginia and currently serves in the Virginia House of Delegates.
