Gov. Larry Hogan today announced the appointment of Linda Norman to the Maryland Senate to replace her husband, H. Wayne Norman Jr., who died unexpectedly earlier this month.
The governor made the appointment following recommendations from the Harford County and Cecil County Republican Central Committees.
“While we are still shocked and saddened by the news of Senator Norman’s sudden passing, it is our responsibility to make sure that Harford and Cecil Counties are fully represented in our legislature,” Hogan said in a statement. “Linda Norman is capable, qualified, and connected to the communities that she will be representing, and I have no doubt that she will serve her constituents well in this new role.”
Linda Norman has served as the office manager for a law firm in Bel Air for more than 25 years, according to the governor’s office, and has worked extensively with The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region for the employment of individuals in the program.
Previously, she served as treasurer of the Harford County Republican Club.
