TAYLORSVILLE — Rep. Mark Hollo (R-Alexander) announced this week that he will not seek re-election to the N.C. House of Representatives.
“After careful consideration, I have decided to not seek re-election to the N.C. House of Representatives,” said Hollo. “Serving my community in the House has been a great honor and privilege, but I am looking forward to having more time to spend with my family that includes our two granddaughters with a third one on the way.”
Hollo cited the Legislature’s work last year to promote job growth and keep the state fiscally sound as major accomplishments.
“I am proud that we balanced the budget, lowered taxes, and kept our debt low,” Hollo said. “These common sense principles are benefiting our state now and will make sure that future generations have the opportunity to grow up in a strong North Carolina.”
Hollo was elected to the NC House in 2004, 2010 and 2012. He represents District 73 which includes Alexander, Wilkes (part), and Yadkin counties. He and his wife, Barbara, live in Taylorsville.
