Former state Rep. Osgood wins District 4 House seat
Elected to Sullivan County’s District 4 House seat last fall, Donovan announced his resignation in February, citing personal reasons. Donovan was a state representative from 1992 to 2000 and 2002 to 2010.
Osgood first became a state representative during a special election in 2005. He continued to serve after that. When the wards in Claremont were redistricted, he decided to run for state Senate so that he would not be competing with the two other Republican state representatives in his newly assigned ward.
When Donovan stepped down, Osgood said he thought he would be a good candidate.
Osgood said he is a strong supporter of government, but doesn’t believe in increasing taxes to expand government.
“People are finally waking up. Of course I’ve been a small-government, low-tax guy all along, but it seems there are other people that are beginning to look that way, too. I’m encouraged,” Osgood said.
