(Hooksett, NH – August 31st, 2020) The New Hampshire AFL-CIO announced today the endorsement of former NH Rep. Mindi Messmer’s candidacy for the New Hampshire Executive Council. Messmer, an associate member of SEA 1984 and a member of the National Writers Union (Boston Chapter), served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives from 2016 to 2018, representing Rockingham District 24.
“Mindi was a dependable vote in support of working families in the House and she’s proven to be an effective advocate on the issues that matter,” Glenn Brackett, President of the NH AFL-CIO said. “Mindi takes the time to understand every side of an issue and we need someone who does her homework representing the best interests of New Hampshire’s tax-paying citizens on the Executive Council.”
“I’m grateful for AFL-CIO’s unanimous vote to support my campaign for the Executive Council. Their members know that I am the candidate that will advocate to protect and fund their pensions and retirement funds and protect collective bargaining rights,” Messmer said. “I’ll advocate for contracts that hire NH workers, pay livable wages, and maintain worker safety. Supporting and protecting NH workers must be an integral part of our economy recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
