Holahan spent over a decade as Director of the Office of Legislative Services in New Hampshire, the non-partisan bill drafting and research office for the state’s 424-member legislature. Most recently, she has served as Of Counsel at the law firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton.

Commenting on the announcement, Dolan said, “Carol brings to NEPGA a unique combination of experiences focused on the legislative process representing a broad and diverse constituency. Her strong demonstrated ability to work on complex and contentious matters with credibility is critically important as we move forward on a diverse set of issues here in New England. I am very excited to have Carol join the NEPGA team at this key time for the energy industry, consumers and policymakers.”

Holahan said, “I’m thrilled to join the NEPGA staff in representing competitive power generators. The New England states have always been active participants in the electricity marketplace and that has never been more true than now. I look forward to working with policymakers and other stakeholders on moving the region forward for reliable, competitive and environmentally-responsible power supplies.”

Holahan received her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University and graduated magna cum laude from Suffolk University Law School. At NEPGA, Holahan will be responsible for representing the association with policymakers across the region. She will also be part of the NEPGA staff developing strategic planning and advocacy for the competitive power generation industry.

Holahan will begin at NEPGA on June 1.
