A few months ago I had a dream - I was running as a candidate for Mayor of LA. Since then, I have been reflecting on the significance of this possibility. I have decided to accept the journey and dedicate the next two and a half years of my life to the call. I am accepting this call not only because I love LA and seek to commit myself to bringing people together to build a city which can be an exemplary beacon of light on the planet, but also because I am aware that at this time individuals everywhere are being called to stand up as a true and authentic voice for a community of people who are ready for a more mature and joint way of creating the change they want to see. I accept this without attachment to outcome, but with honor to do my part in lifting the wave of this change.
I am really excited to have become clear about the road ahead and I am extremly grateful to be part of a community that understands that we are indeed the ones who we've been waiting for. I would have never guessed that this was going to be part of my journey, however, I realize that while major shifts are happening in every arena, I now know that a positive shift in community politics has already begun. Love and gratitude for all of your support, let's do it together not just for LA but for the betterment of the world. - Forrest Kolb
