"As former Administrator of the USEPA, I am concerned about the current Administration’s attack on science and agencies we rely on to protect public health and our natural resources. We need more women like Mindi Messmer in Congress with the scientific expertise needed to tackle today’s complex challenges."
"We need honest, strong representatives in Congress because I believe in the power of government to help people stay safe, have health care, end poverty, and take care of their families. I donated toMindi although I live in Georgia because I believe in her integrity and determination, and we don't yet have good people to support for Congress in my home state."
"As a mom, I'm fighting for a livable climate for my daughter – and for all children – by doing all I can to respond to the urgent need to act against climate change. It's hard when we live in a time when what science tells us is derided and what women do is too often dismissed or degraded. It's vital that we elect strong women to represent us, especially those who know science matters. Better yet, let's elect those who know how to use science to identify environmental threats to our health. Mindi knows both, and this is why I want to send her to Congress. Please join me in supportingMindi Messmer for Congress in New Hampshire."
Please join me in welcoming another scientist to our Brand New Congress family. Mindi and I have a lot in common. We are both environmental scientists, activists and mothers. And we are running for environmental justice for our children.
Mindi Messmer represents the new wave of progressive politics this state requires. As a scientist and activist, she became the voice of grieving New Hampshire seacoast families whose children were dying from rare cancers.
The time has come for bold progressive leadership. I am endorsing the only candidate in this race with a proven record of major legislative accomplishment and decades of fierce advocacy for science and protecting the environment and public health. It is time for State Representative Mindi Messmer to take her scientific background to Congress and take on a reckless Administration that is hell-bent on destroying decades of common-sense health, safety, and environmental regulations.
Democratic 1st District U.S. House candidate Mindi Messmer was endorsed Wednesday by Brand New Congress, a political action committee formed by former staffers and supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.
We have wonderfully accomplished women in our Legislature.
One of my freshman colleagues, Rep. Mindi Mesmer, from Rye, has declared her candidacy for Carol Shea Porter’s seat. Mesmer is an accomplished geologist with expertise in environmental toxins. She uncovered a rare pediatric cancer cluster at the Seacoast and has lead the work on understanding the PFOA water contamination in the Seacoast area. She advocates for legislation to protect drinking water, with three of her bills passed and signed into law during her first year. We are lucky that she was able to follow her passion and make such important contributions. Now we need to get her elected to Congress to continue to fight for policy based on good science.
"I endorse Mindi Messmer, because I have seen her in action. I have had the honor of serving with her on several committees and have worked with her on several actions. She passionately works on a multitude of issues, with fierce determination, and is not afraid to cross party lines to get it done. I have never seen someone attack issues like Mindi does. She is a fighter. Her scientific background, and research skills, are an added bonus. New Hampshire and the US needs people like her."
