LAKE WYLIE The Clover-Lake Wylie Republican Women celebrate the election of petition candidate S.C. state Sen. Katrina Shealy (R-Dist. 23, Lexington County) at their annual membership champagne tea from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at the home of Donna Schaub in Lake Wylie.
The former chair of the Lexington County Republican Party, Shealy led the area’s GOP victory efforts in 2004 and 2006. As state senator, Shealy said will “lead the charge for less government mandates and regulations of small businesses.”
• Tax reform: Simplify the tax system and develop a tax structure that doesn’t pick winners and losers; eliminate all state taxes, replaced by a state sales tax; and reduce industrial property taxes.
• Regulatory reform: Eliminate wasteful and inefficient regulations to create a market-friendly regulatory system.
• Education reform: Provide more competition with school choice; allow for innovation and flexibility by removing government restrictions on public school funding; maximize education funding by distributing funds directly to schools.
Shealy helped start the West Metro Republican Women’s group, of which she has served as president for multiple years. She is an active board member and the current chair of the Board of the South Carolina Friends of Juvenile Justice. She has served on the Board of Directors of the Lexington County Department of Social Services and the Girl Scouts of the Congaree. She also serves on the Advisory Board of the Women of Hope, a new outreach of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation. She was the recipient of the Lexington Medical Foundation’s Mission Achiever Award and has been named a Foundation Ambassador.
CLWRW members and any one wishing to join the CLWRW, including men as associate members, are invited. Reservations are requested. Call 803-831-1814 or 803-631-1049 by today, Nov. 27.
