Meet Nancy Murphy
Committed to fighting for clean water standards, Nancy was named one of the original "water warriors" who took the fight to the multi-billion dollar French conglomerate St. Gobain after they poisoned Merrimack's water supply with PFAS contaminants.
After years of seeing Merrimack Republican state reps. sitting on their hands, Nancy took the fight for clean water to the State House after winning the 2018 election. In the past two years alone, she has co-sponsored bills providing funding for PFAS blood tests, strengthening clean water standards, and holding St. Gobain accountable for taking advantage of Merrimack's position as a small town.
She was also the prime sponsor of HB 737: "commission to investigate and analyze the environmental and public health impacts relating to releases of perfluorinated chemicals in the air, soil, and groundwater in Merrimack, Bedford and Litchfield."
She was a cosponsor and member of the SB85 "Commission to study environmentally-triggered chronic illness."
Nancy was appointed to and a member of the COMMITTEE ON THE NEEDS OF VICTIMS OF CRIME AND THE ENFORCEMENT OF CRIME VICTIMS' RIGHTS.
