Paul E. Amori, founder of the Love Party and three-time Mayor of the Lightning In A Bottle festival, is running for Mayor of Los Angeles to spread love over our fair city.

“LA has not only been my home for the last 16 years, but it is also a very visible stage from which to launch a grass roots movement that we hope to make into a national and eventually even an international movement.

With the nation’s largest homeless population, congested streets and highways, rising cost of living and crime, Los Angeles is in dire need of more love!”

Amori’s first foray into the world of politics came when he was ceremoniously elected mayor of the Lightning in a Bottle music festival in 2012 and 2013. As a token of his esteem for the festival and its multi-cultural attendees he created Amori’s Casino & Burlesque, a late night venue that celebrates love in all its myriad forms and passions. Over the last four years Amori’s has become a beloved institution at the festival and has continued to serve as the festival’s honorary mayor.

Like all descendants of immigrants of this great nation, Amori’s roots can be traced back to the old country.  But make no mistake, Amori is 110% grade A – Amorican, and an Angelino thru and thru.
