Mindi Messmer is best candidate for CD1

On that recent Saturday in Hooksett, Mindi Messmer came into sharp focus, as I heard her state that she is running a grassroots campaign; that she understands how dark money is corrupting our democracy to the core; and that she won’t accept special interest or corporate lobbyist PAC money.

To the Editor: Messmer an obvious choice

Why Mindi? Mindi has been working for New Hampshire families for years on issues of environmental contamination, women’s rights, transgender rights, and more. The other candidates are all good folks and want to bring a Democratic majority for good reasons. But we must must not lose sight of what the Congressional representatives are supposed to do. Congress (when it’s working) writes laws that improve our health and safety and quality of life. As a state representative Mindi has done just that: She works hard, builds alliances and gets things done.

LETTER: Mindi for Medicare-For-All to Boost Small Business

The U.S. Small Business Administration (USSBA) recently celebrated, for the 55th time, National Small Business Week to recognize the important contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small businesses, which employ and/or are owned by over half of all Americans. Small businesses are reported to create around two out of every three American jobs each year. Certainly, Americans of all stripes can and want to get behind our small businesses.

Vote Mindi Messmer for Congress; we’re her special interest


NH Rep. Mindi Messmer and I worked together in the early days of investigating NH’s, Coakley dump contamination. As the former Great Bay Piscataqua Waterkeeper, I conducted the surface water testing that showed PFC (perfluorinated chemicals) contamination originating from the dump. Rep. Messmer and I consulted on who dumped what and when in this unlined dump and studied the historical documents on the dump’s eventual closure and responsible parties. We followed the money trail to ascertain which taxpayers and businesses were still on the financial hook for a Superfund site that had failed. By the way, there are many Superfund sites in NH. How is yours doing?

Send a cancer fighter to Congress

To the Editor: I support Mindi Messmer, a scientist and cancer fighter, in her run for Congress. She is an accomplished geologist with expertise in environmental toxins. She uncovered a rare pediatric cancer cluster at the Seacoast in 2014, and leads the work on understanding PFOA water contamination in the Seacoast area. In February, she received a leadership award in cancer prevention from Less Cancer, a national organization.

To the Editor: Mindi vows ‘never again’ to another Flint water crisis

Mindi Messmer, who is running for the NH01 Congressional seat, has vowed that, “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.” She is working to change the way legislators consider the cost of not implementing stricter policies for contaminated drinking water by considering medical costs to address cancer and chronic disease if toxins are not filtered out of water. She is also trying to change the way we develop drinking water standards by focusing on effects on the most vulnerable, the children, and by markedly lowering the acceptable rates of cancer.
