Catalog Number: M202.3.1

Records in this series reflect the concise results of staff research in 1973 and 1974. They include briefing books on Republican candidate James Erwin's statements, voting record, and a contributors' list to Erwin's 1970 campaign for governor. Also included are Mitchell's press releases, statements, position papers, and notes on such issues as tax reform, energy, and fishing. Mitchell proposed such programs as establishment of a Maine Land Bank to protect Maine's public lands; development support for the fishing industry; establishment of a comprehensive energy policy; improvement of Maine's health care system; programs to assure financial accountability and cost analysis for governmental agencies; expanded adult education; and, most importantly, programs to ensure that "No Maine citizen should be forced to choose between a decent job and a decent place to live. In planning for Maine's future we must integrate economic and environmental objectives." These papers were developed from research material in the subject and campaign files.

Access Restrictions: None.
