Scope and Content Note

The series consists of the records of Elaine Brown's 2005 campaign for Mayor of Brunswick, Georgia, as well as records concerning Brown's 2007 campaign to be the Green Party's candidate for President of the United States. Records of Brown's mayoral campaign include contact information for campaign supporters and volunteers, printed material promoting Brown’s campaign, and event and fundraising information. The mayoral campaign records also include research on issues in Brunswick that Brown made part of her campaign platform such as racial discrimination and the Blueprint Brunswick redevelopment plans. The series also contains financial records such as disclosure reports, receipts, and contributions to the Friends of Elaine Brown for Mayor of Brunswick fund. Mayoral campaign records are also comprised of litigation between Brown and Glynn County Board of Elections and Voter Registration concerning her status as a Brunswick resident and Brown's contestation of the mayoral election results. The records for Brown's presidential campaign mostly include contact information for campaign supporters and volunteers, research on voters of color in the United States, and correspondence. The presidential campaign correspondence is mostly letters of support for Brown’s campaign. The series also contains a presidential nomination kit and records of the Green Party’s 2007 platform.
