He then voluntarily proposed to limit his own spending to $500,000 and suggested Curb restrict his to $750,000. The additional $250,000 break for Curb he said was intended to compensate for his own incumbency and heavy Democratic voter registration advantage. Jack Courtemanche, chairman of Friends for Mike Curb, said a campaign report due Jan. 31 would show that $253,000 had been collected in contributions as of a month earlier. He said the primary budget is pegged at $500,000 and no general campaign spending plan had been decided upon. As for, the spending limitation, Courtemanche added: "We'd be happy to discuss the details with his peoplei'" Also in the. race for the Democratic lieutenant govenor nomination is Patricia Raven, a Fresno businesswoman, who announced her candidacy last November. Dymally also said he hoped that candidates would be elected on the basis of their records and their positions on issues. . ., Dymally, who has often asserted he is a victim of what he has termed unfair news, coverage, suggested to reporters that they investigate Curb's, "relationship with some people who are involved in questionable activities in the record industry," Dymally refused to indicate what reporter^ would uncover other than to say, "Here's a, good story, you ought to look at that one." Courtemanche said, "We'd be very happy to have Mike Curb's background checked out. Through the years, Mike Curb has represented such artists as Pat Boone, Shaun Cassidy and the Osmond family and has never been involved in anything questionable." Dymally said he had" "no evidence of wrongdoing, but since association has become a signficiant factor in American politics, it seems to me that one needs to look at that." Ask if, in effect, he was not suggesting the same kind of treatment of Curb to which he had so deplored for himself, Dymally told reporters:' "No. I'm just posing the challenge for you. You're the ones who deal with association. I'm just saying, here's a good story, you ought to take ,a look at that one." Asked what was good about it and what reporters should look for, he responded: MARK H. RAWITSCH Will take over museum in Willits New museum director hired County supervisors yesterday announced the selection of Mark H. Rawit- sch, as the new director of the county museum in Willits. - On hearing announcement of his selection Rawitsch, 27, Carpenteria said, "I enthusiastically accept the' appointment and hope for a long and successful relationship with the county." Rawitsch was named to the post at the end of an hour-long closed door interview session- involving four finalists.' There were approximately 20 applicants for the position. Rawitsch comes from Carpenteria where he has been serving as curator of Carpenteria Valley Historical Society Museum. He received a Bachelor's degree in anthropology from Chico State College and a Master's degree in history from University of California at Riverside. He said he has been working in Carpenteria since August of this year. Rawitsch said the exhibits at the county museum were much further along than he had expected when he arrived to tour the museum. "They have a fine collection," he said. Sgt. Stafford (Cont'd from Paget) In keeping with his desire to utilize all existing resources in managing the department before seeking to expand its resources, Stafford intends to rejuvenate the reserve program, an auxiliary force of volunteers designed to provide coverage at special events while at* the same time providing training in all phases of law enforcement, so that its participants can later qualify for regular positions with the department. Stafford has a deep concern for the young people of Mendocino County and will strive to provide county- residents with as. many professional career .opportunities as are available within the department, so that the need to move away from one's Home to pursue a law enforcement career is minimized as fully as possible. Another main concern to Stafford is' that the sheriff's- • department remains accountable to the public at all times, and toward this end he will institute a program of publicly reporting depart* mental activities arid programs, particularly in the area of crime clearance rates as,opposed to those remaining unsolved, so that the department's effectiveness can be evaluated by the citizens who rely on it. In addition to public evaluation, Stafford believes that accessibility by citizens to the department's services and personnel is also a major factor in maintaining a competent and professional law enforcement agendy, and development of „ the qepart- rnenfs accountability and ac.cesibility to the public will be a cornerstone of his administration. Stafford, 49, who received the Employee of the Year award from fellow employees in 1976 for his contributions toward the betterment of working . conditions for Mendocino County employees, resides in Redwood Valley with his wife Lynn, and children'Steve, 19; David, 16; Cyndi, 15; and Debra, 14. Another son, Ron, is married and lives in Ukiah. Stafford encourages all county residents to become familiar with the issues and to participate in the campaign for the office of sheriff- coroner in this important election year.
