Send Mindi to Washington to continue the fight for your family.
On the Issues
Justice is the salvation of Democracy. I will fight for economic, gender, racial, social, criminal and environmental justice in Washington.
We must move forward, not backward. I will work to transform this country into a nation that affirms the value of people regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation.
Healthcare is a basic human right; every citizen, regardless of health or economic status, deserves full access to high-quality healthcare. Health is key to overall well-being and economic stability for all. The only way to solve our national healthcare crisis is to expand Medicare to all.
I will fight for at least a $15 minimum wage and for a tax code that works for the 99% of us—not just for corporations.
Every American has a right to clean air and clean water. In Congress, I will continue to fight lobbyists, the administration, and special interests to safeguard and reform regulations and policies meant to prevent cancer and chronic illness.
I will fight to expand Social Security to lift Americans out of poverty, let people retire with dignity, and take care of our veterans and disabled citizens and their families.
Mindi brings a unique perspective on the hazards we are facing as a state. I’ve watched her fight for responsible legislation to ensure our families receive the protections they deserve to have against corporate polluters that wreak havoc on the lives of our citizens, often robbing them of loved ones.
I am happy to announce that, Representative Mindi Messmer, Congressional Candidate for CD-1, graduated from Georgetown University with a Master’s of Science Degree in Clinical and Translational Science on Friday. I congratulate Mindi on her continued education which benefits the citizens of New Hampshire.
So grateful to receive the endorsement of Women for Justice by Our Revolution! Social, economic, and environmental justice issues are all intertwined and I am encouraged that an organization like this recognizes women who fight for all justice for all.
NH colleague and Professor of Health Management and Policy and NH State Rep. Jeffrey Salloway, PhD publicly endorsed my campaign for the 1st Congressional seat! I am so honored to have the support of such an accomplished scientist. He has endorsed my campaign because as an accomplished scientist he understands the importance of doubling the number of scientists in Congress by putting me there.
I have seen first hand the policies and values of the following candidates and they have proven to be at the forefront of nearly every Resistance effort and position since we began working. I am aligning myself strongly with the following candidates and HAVE DONE MY RESEARCH FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS on a much deeper level than just checking their websites and reading their statements.
"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.
“As an environmental scientist and an experienced state rep. Mindi is the perfect person to represent us in Congress. I am proud to endorse her.”
"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."
“Just spend one minute with Mindi and you will understand. Or listen to her at a meeting, making a presentation. Sure, Mindi is a scientist and she knows her stuff...but her message - what she cares about - are the things we care about. She cares about giving kids a healthy environment and a great education and the decent healthcare they deserve; she cares about protecting senior citizens. Her message is delivered with profound empathy. Yeah, she's smarter than most, she knows the issues better than most...but, unlike most politicians, she never condescends. And, boy, when she discovers that our kids are in harm's way...watch out! She will raise hell on earth...and goodness knows, we could use a few more hell-raisers in Congress...I believe Mindi and I believe in her. She's my choice. Take a hard look at her. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. An amazing person who will protect what we care about. She's the one.”
"I endorse Mindi Messmer because she has effectively impacted lasting change on the Seacoast and throughout the State of NH in regard to both our environmental and personal health through her tireless advocacy as well as her three thoughtful pieces legislation that were signed in to law in her first year serving as State Representative at the NH Statehouse. Mindi is the voice of the people and we need more of that!"
"I have recently moved to New Hampshire. I am an environmental scientist by schooling and work in the water infrastructure sector. In researching water quality issues before our move in order to protect my wife's health, I found a wealth of information provided by Mindi Messmer. I started regularly following her posts in social media. She is a true champion of the people and very committed to helping the community. I have been extremely impressed by her as a person, a scientist, and a tireless advocate for the people. How lucky New Hampshire is to have such a statesperson in public service. How lucky the whole country will be if we can send Mindi Messmer to Congress!
"I have given a lot of thought about the growing field of candidates and how to evaluate who is best for NH and America. I have followed Mindi for a while now and three things really stand out: 1) Mindi's expertise is uniquely suited to the needs of Congress today. We have plenty of lawyers and business people. We could use more scientists that drive evidence-based policy. In a time where partisianship is turning off so many Americans, her approach following facts and science is not partisian. 2) Her work ethic stands head and shoulders above many other elected officials. 3) Her ability to build a coalition and keep constituents informed and engaged is very important and refreshing.
"A Scientist - An IDEAL Politician! Thank you for working so hard to ensure clean air and water for NH citizens!"
