Fellow Representative Jerry Knirk Endorses Mindi Messmer for Congress
Conway Daily Sun, January 5, 2018
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.
