Holland references his questionable committee assignments without malice and provides a good picture of statesmanship:
I’m putting hard feelings aside; I’m going to be the best minority member I can be.Thank you, Chairman.
I will not let anyone steal my passion, knowledge, and desire to see Mississippi prosper.
I’m a journeyman. I can take the lumps and bruises and emerge. That’s exactly what I plan to do with your continued help and support. Thanks for the opportunity.
