Our community has lost another young life to cancer. This is another loss to rhabdomyosarcoma identified in the Seacoast pediatric cancer cluster. The double cancer cluster in the Seacoast area consists of higher than expected rates of rhabdomyosarcoma and pleuropulmonary blastoma but also almost three times the expected rate for brain and central nervous system cancers in our children. This child is a member of our community. I have a son about the same age.
CONCORD, N.H. —
A New Hampshire state representative is asking the attorney general's office to investigate after her name, picture and personal information was posted to a white nationalist website.
Rep. Mindi Messmer, D-Rye, said her information was posted to the New Hampshire site, along with about 20 other legislators. Messmer, who is running for Congress in the 1st Congressional District, sponsored legislation earlier this year condemning hate crimes and racism.
GREENLAND -- State Rep. Mindi Messmer, D-Rye, is questioning the conclusion reached by a Coakley Landfill Group consultant that PFAS found in Berry’s Brook is coming from above the landfill cap and not the landfill itself.
Messmer based her comments Tuesday on the diverse content in the Superfund landfill’s waste, “the seasonal variation in contamination levels and the fact that deep bedrock groundwater beneath the landfill is highly contaminated with PFAS.”
I received a call at approximately 1:15 pm today, August 3, 2018, from Senator Shaheen stating that she would be endorsing another candidate in the Democratic primary. It is unfortunate that the establishment party thinks it’s necessary to get involved in the middle of a democratic primary process. It seems that the party has not learned anything from 2016 which resulted in Donald Trump’s election to the presidency. This signals that the party thinks their insider candidate is not capable of winning on his own merits. His legislative record shows he never initiated a bill in four years and cosponsored two which were not passed.
I am deeply concerned about the comments made by the Department of Education Director Anthony Schinella relating to efforts to bring diversity to New Hampshire.
On the same day that I get to Congress to represent NH CD-1, I will immediately sign up to join the newly formed House Medicare for All Caucus lead by Democratic Reps. Pramila Jayapal (Wash.), Debbie Dingell (Mich.) and Keith Ellison. Medicare for All is a program that works now and needs to allow access so that to everyone. This is a central commitment of my campaign. There are already 122 House Representatives signed on as co-sponsors of Rep. Ellison's H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act.
This week, Congressional candidate Mindi Messmer was endorsed by the “Seacoast Huddle” an issue-based advocacy group started by Mary Ann Driscoll and Christine Collins. Below is their endorsement letter.
By Jeff McMenemy firstname.lastname@example.org Posted at 7:38 PM Updated at 7:38 PM PORTSMOUTH -- The state’s congressional delegation is calling for the Trump administration to find out what is making New Hampshire children sick in light of a recent report indicating the state has the highest pediatric cancer rate in the country.
HENNESSEY ENDORSES MESSMER. State Sen. Martha Hennessey has endorsed state Rep. Mindi Messmer for the 1st District U.S. House seat, calling the Rye lawmaker “a dynamic, exciting candidate.”
Although Hennessey, who lives in Hanover, is a resident of the state’s 2nd Congressional District, her endorsement provides Messmer with significant support from a high-ranking progressive female elected state official.
As reported by Politico earlier this month and after almost 6 months of suppression, the ATSDR was able to release results of important health studies in a report today that concludes EPA’s drinking water advisory for perfluorinated chemicals in drinking water is inadequate to protect people from cancer and other chronic health diseases.
