PORTLAND (AP) — A Maine lawyer who worked in the Carter administration has filed papers for the 2010 governor’s race.

Eliot
Cutler of Cape Elizabeth filed Monday as an unenrolled candidate. He
said he’ll make an official decision on his status this fall.

Cutler
was a legislative assistant for Sen. Edmund Muskie. He then served as
counsel to the Senate subcommittee on the environment, helping to write
the Clean Air Act, the Water Pollution Control Act and the National
Environmental Policy Act.

Cutler also was President Carter’s top official for environmental, natural resources and energy issues.

A
total of 18 people have taken out papers with the state Ethics
Commission for the governor’s race: five unenrolled candidates, six
Democrats, five Republicans and two Green Independents.
