Frank Holden who serves Hillsborough District 4, which includes the towns of Lyndeborough, Temple, Mont Vernon, New Boston and Wilton. Rep.

House Speaker William O’Brien
“I want to thank Rep. Holden for his service to the State of New Hampshire and to the citizens of Lyndeborough, Temple, Mont Vernon, New Boston and Wilton. In our shared district, I know our constituents were grateful for the work Rep. Holden did in Concord to help pass a budget that cut state spending by 18 percent, roll back taxes and fees, and cut many regulations on our businesses. I especially enjoyed working with Rep. Holden on legislation to block the Low Carbon Fuel Standards scheme that would have dramatically increased the cost of gas and heating oil in New Hampshire. This bill kept money in the pockets of working families in New Hampshire. Rep. Holden will be missed and we wish him the best on his move and in his future endeavors. ”
