Residents of Mesquite, NM, are tired of the air pollution that blows from the Helena Chemical Company’s fertilizer mixing plant into their yards, homes and businesses. For years, they have worked together as the Mesquite Community Action Committee to advocate for better air quality.
At different times during the past decade, we have represented the Committee.
We will continue to represent the community in its efforts to clean up the air in Mesquite.
