Katrina Frye Shealy (born December 25, 1954 in Columbia, South Carolina) is an American politician, and a member of the South Carolina State Senate.[1] She is a Republican but was elected as a petition candidate from District 23 in Lexington County. At the time of her election she was the only woman in the South Carolina Senate but is now one of four women currently serving in the South Carolina State Senate.

She is an insurance executive and the former chairwoman of the Lexington County Republican Party.

Electoral history

In 2008, Shealy ran for the Republican Party's State Senate District 23 nomination against long-time incumbent State Senator Jake Knotts. Despite support from prominent Republicans including United States Senator Jim DeMint,[2] Shealy was defeated. Shealy filed again as a candidate in the 2012 Republican primary. Her name was removed from the ballot after it was determined that she incorrectly filed her candidate paperwork. This case went to the SC Supreme Court and resulted in the removal of over 200 candidates from the ballot that year who had also incorrectly filed their paperwork. It was known as the Great Ballot Debacle of 2012. Shealy fought to have her name added to the general election ballot as a petition candidate and won the November 7, 2012 general election with 51% of the vote.[3]

South Carolina State Senate

In her first term She served on the Agricultural and Natural Resources committee, Corrections and Penology committee, Fish, Game and Forestry committee, General committee and the Judiciary committee.[4]

In 2015, Shealy was elected First Vice Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party.

Shealy was reelected to serve a second term on November 8, 2016. She now serves on the Judiciary Committee, Fish, Game and Forestry, Banking and Insurance, Family and Veteran Services (formally the General Committee) and Corrections and Penology. Shealy was appointed to serve on the SC Joint Citizens and Legislative Committee On Children and also serves as Chair of the Southeastern Legislative Committee Human Services and Public Safety Committee. Shealy serves as Chair of the Family and Veterans Services Committee and is the first Republican woman to ever serve as Chair of a Standing Committee in the South Carolina Senate. Shealy is also Co-Chair of the SC Suicide Prevention Coalition and a member of the Governor’s Committee on Domestic Violence. She also serves on the Senate Operations and Management Committee.

Senator Shealy is a tireless advocate for children’s issues and in 2015 created a 501(c)3 “Katrina’s Kids to serve children in Foster Care and Group Homes across all 46 counties in South Carolina. The foundation raises funds to send children to summer camp, participate in sporting opportunities, or any approved extra curricular activity not supported by State Funding. The foundation has also helped with unexpected medical or dental issues for children. Katrina’s kids host an Annual Music Benefit and a “Race for the Case” 5K event that helps supply suitcases and backpacks so no child ever comes into Foster Care with their clothes in a trash bag.

In 2018 Shealy was the sponsor of Legislation in SC that was signed into law by the Governor creating the Office of the Child Advocate (S805). This Agency has oversight over the nine state agencies that handle children issues and goes into effect 7/1/2019.

Shealy is also committed to serving South Carolina’s veteran’s and was instrumental in helping to pass legislation to make the Office of Veteran’s Affairs a Cabinet Agency under the Governor to better serve SC Veterans. Each year Senator Shealy also sponsors an event honoring the families of South Carolina’s Fallen Soldiers from the previous year.
