314 Action Releases Statement on Mindi Messmer’s Congressional Campaign Announcement

Mindi Spent Her Career Defending Science and Standing Up for Public Health As an Environmental Scientist and State Representative in New Hampshire

(Washington, D.C.) -- Today, environmental scientist Mindi Messmer announced her candidacy for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District. Attached is the press release from her campaign.
Joshua Morrow, Executive Director of 314 Action, released the following statement:
“It is encouraging to see candidates like Mindi, with a proven track record of standing up for science science, stepping up to the plate to run for office. In an era where alternative facts and attacks on science are the norm at the hands of the Trump Administration, Congress needs the perspective of scientists who will base policy on evidence rather than intuition.”
