My Top 3 Priorities

  • Decrease the amount of regulations and release the economic engine of business and jobs.
  • Listen to our citizens. Spending time being a businessman and El Cajon native, I have been stepped in the life of my community, as a citizen, businessman, and a volunteer. Together, we can overcome our obstacles. "Why? Because we are Americans"
  • Rebuilt El Cajon and make us proud as it once was.​ Through innovation, less regulation, supporting our schools, and listening to our citizens, and finding solutions for the homeless and working poor. No Syrian refugees without proper screening

Biography

Humbert Cabrera is proud to be El Cajon’s Citizen of the Year.  He is a native of El Cajon were I reside with my family. He is the owner of a local design and drafting firm that serves the East County and surrounding communities.  In 2015 Humbert served as this first elected minority president of the El Cajon Rotary.  This platform was used to raise over 8-10K more revenue than the previous year.  This money assisted in funding various educational and community service based programs in East County, such as the dictionary fund for third graders, after school reading programs, and the El Cajon Main Street flag days.  We increased the number of Rotary work days, providing members with more volunteer hours for organizations such as the Home of Guiding Hands, Salvation Army, One Thousand Smiles, and St Madeline Sophie’s Center.  As president Humbert worked to bridge the gap between the local Lions Club, Kiwanis and Elks Lodge, bringing the leaders  of these organizations together to join forces in serving the community.  This leadership helped bring 14-16 new community oriented members into the El Cajon Rotary club.

Humbert continues to serve on the board of the Rotary Club and Rotary Foundation and serve on the board of the Salvation Army of El Cajon Corps and am part of the building and construction committee to help design and raise funds for the new Food Bank/ Community Center that is in the works to serve the needy of the East County.  He assisted in the annual Spring Golf Tournament.  During the Christmas Season Humbert's family and staff volunteer for the toy drive and bell ringing for the Army’s Red Kettle .  

Humbert is a board member of CASA  (Community Action Service Advocacy)  )and LAPA (Latino American Political Association) which helps poor minority communities. He is also active in the Elks Lodge and the Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee.  His company has provided services for the ECP (East County Posse) to help quadriplegics and those with rare physical conditions get permits for retrofitting additions to structures.  We recently volunteered our time to complete a set of plans and obtained a permit for a 9 year old quadriplegic child and her family to make their home handicap accessible. 

Creating opportunities for minorities, handicapped, and refugee by providing one-on-one job skill training and mentoring, is a task we take on.  As a community activist, He worked to pass the Deemed Approved Ordinance, Proposition D, and the elimination of the faulty red light cameras in the City of El Cajon.

Humbert has worked to meet with community officials in order to make changes in streamlining the building and permits process in several communities, thus assisting homeowners and several small businesses with their ability to thrive.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Humbert believes in less government working together to serve it's citizens.  There are over 1,500 new regulations every 2.5 years in the building industry alone.  People cannot get jobs and businesses have to give most of their effort and money to government instead of to employees.  "Government is not the solution, it is part of the problem".  It keeps getting bigger and more wealthy whiel the price of eggs, bread, and esentials keep going up.  We need to work together toward solutions and listen to our citizens.  We cannot allow people to cut in the front of the line, in front of immigrants working throught he system legally.  We need more jobs and less big brother government.  We need to bring citizens together, rather then seperating them into groups.  "America is hungry to feel the sence of mission and greatness, so is El Cajon"
