Campaign themes


Cabrera stated the following about his political philosophy in a biographical submission to Ballotpedia.[1]

"This is a difficult one to answer shortly, but simply stated my goal is the transformation of governance structures from our 200 year old slow and bureaucratic system, into one that is based on interactive technologies to bring our governance structures into the 21st century. If successful, when my work is complete, our government will function at the fast and accelerating pace that our society is currently functioning at, with non-stop real-time interactivity utilizing the internet, cell phones, and snail mail."
