Change of Plans

Scott Crawford drops out of race for CD13.

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you I will not be a candidate for City Council in 2013.  Unfortunately, despite a valiant effort, our signatures did not qualify for the ballot.

Although I am very sad about not being able to run for City Council, I am more disappointed that I will not be able to fight for a thriving arts community, for actors and writers and artists across our City, for historic preservation and for stronger environmental protections.  These core values are the reason I sought office, and I am sorry that I will not be able to be a champion for them on the Council.

I cannot let this moment pass without thanking the volunteers, contributors, staff and friends and family who supported me in this effort.  I remain humbled by your faith and trust in me.

As for my future…  I have decided to take a much-needed respite in India, the land of many inspirational figures including Mahatma Gandhi and Deepak Chopra.  Although I am saddened by this turn of events, it is clear that this was not the path the universe had in mind for me at this time, and I accept that and am eternally grateful for the experience.

Thanks again my friends.  Let’s be in touch…
