Postcard Mailed to Voters in Support of Mayor Lugar and Other Republican Candidates, 1971

In advance of the first municipal election since the enactment of UniGov, local Republican officials mailed this postcard, promoting the achievements of their party and of Mayor Lugar. Images on the front of the card include the new City-County Building, the new Indiana National Bank building, the Indianapolis 500 Raceway, the proposed Convention Center, and the Indianapolis Police motorcycle squad. The text on the back of the postcard refers to city-county consolidation and accompanying high rates of building and road construction, employment, and recreation opportunities.
