Fern Shubert

Fern H. Shubert was a Republican member of the North Carolina General Assembly representing the state's thirty-fifth Senate district, including constituents in Mecklenburg and Union counties. An accountant from Marshville, North Carolina, Shubert served three terms in the state House before being elected to the Senate, where she was the Republican whip.

Before it folded, she wrote a column in the County Edge, a weekly publication in Union County, and still weighs in on local political issues including a fight against a half-cent prepared food and beverage tax that would have helped build a civic center in Monroe.

Fern Shubert was one of the candidates for the Republican gubernatorial nomination to challenge Governor Mike Easley in the 2004 election. The sole woman in a field of six contenders for the GOP nomination, Shubert campaigned as an outsider to the party establishment, but placed fifth in the primary, gathering only 4% of votes cast.

Shubert ran to return to her old Senate seat in 2010.[1] She lost the Republican primary on May 4 to Tommy Tucker.[2] In 2012, Shubert filed to run for North Carolina State Auditor.[3]
