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.
"I am endorsing Mindi Messmer for Congress because she speaks up for all of us no matter what our party affiliation is. As a state representative serving on the Agriculture and Environment Committee, I witnessed how hard Mindi fights for important policy to protect public health.”
The New Hampshire House Progressive Caucus (NHHPC) is proud to endorse Mindi Messmer’s candidacy for New Hampshire’s First Congressional District to the US House of Representatives.
Marie Duggan is a Professor of Economics at Keene State College and co-editor of Dollars and Sense. Last fall, Professor Duggan invited me to speak to her economics students about money in policy. Later in the day, Professor Duggan and Professor Travis arranged for me to present about environmental issues to a “standing room only” crowd. The following quote from Professor Duggan particularly strikes a chord with me, “I am fortunate to teach at a college with many who are first in their families to go to college, and who drink up ideas as fast as I can teach them.” Not only does Professor Duggan understand the real personal impact of the highest in the nation rates of breast, bladder and pediatric cancer but also the economic impact. Professor Duggan has been a constant resource on economic issues and I am so honored to have her support for my Congressional campaign.
In two months, we’ll vote to choose a candidate for the Congressional District 1 seat from a crowded field with many talented candidates. We’ll need to choose the best person, who’ll fight for us on important issues and uphold our values, and who can win this race in November.
We are happy to announce that Seacoast Huddle is endorsing Mindi Messmer for Congress. Our group did extensive research on nine Democratic candidates for the First Congressional District of NH. We looked at their activism prior to declaring for CD1, instead of simply reviewing their campaign platforms. As a result, we reported on three issues where we saw major differences between the candidates.
Mindi, as one of only two scientists in the House of Representatives, will make a difference. We have already seen this difference as a result of her good work in the New Hampshire Legislature and I know we will likewise see it in Washington.
"As former chair of the New Hampshire House Committee on Science Technology and Energy, I wholeheartedly endorse Mindi Messmer in her run for the first congressional district of New Hampshire.”
“Of all the candidates in this race, one truly stands out as someone who will fight tirelessly for the people of New Hampshire. Representative Mindi Messmer has been on the front line for years, working to protect New Hampshire families, including defending the quality of our drinking water, our civil rights, and our fundamental principles. I am proud to support Mindi’s campaign for New Hampshire Congressional District 1.”
“Mindy Messmer’s deep commitment to child safety and her leadership in addressing environmental threats to children, separates her from the pack running for the Democratic nomination in the first congressional district.”
“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 fully supporting Representative Messmer’s run for Congress because, at a time when facts, evidence, and science are under attack from industry, their lobbyists and the Trump Administration, I know this is a threat to public health and we need more scientists in Congress.”
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.
“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 to Mindi 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."
"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 supporting Mindi 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.”
