Collin Holloway

State House of Representatives, District 102

I come from a single parent home. My mom worked in retail and fast food to support us growing up. This modest childhood has taught me the value of hard work. I've always felt a need to help others. I’ve seen with my own eyes the needs of the common people and the disconnect our elected representatives have with us. I've been involved with politics on a grassroots level since I've been old enough to vote. To do the most good, the common people need more representation in the legislature.  I will do my best to represent you.
