Dr. Linda Halderman, MD, FACS

  • QUOTABLE: "I never thought I would be in a profession bloodier than trauma surgery."  
  • In 2012, after serving one term in the Assembly, Halderman declined to run for a second term. On a radio show five hours before the end of the filing period for the 2012 elections, she announced "This is my home and I'm staying here, but it's been more than four years since I have been more of a policy person and a politician than a doctor and I just need to go back."
