Daniel Kemmis discusses his plan to announce his intentions to run for a yet-undetermined statewide office at the end of the 1984 legislative session. Kemmis discusses the incorporation of the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at the University of Montana and his hope to eventually be involved in the Center, given his interest in political ethics. Kemmis also describes the formation of the Northern Lights Institute in Helena, Montana, which was founded to bring together Montana academic and political leaders to reflect on the values and future of the state. He notes that his involvement with Northern Lights has given him and opportunity to reflect on his own political philosophy and write about Montana politics.
