Katina "Katie" Hodson-Thomas (born 28 April 1957, in Adelaide in South Australia) was a Liberal member of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly representing the electorate of Carine after winning the seat in the 1996 election. She was subsequently re-elected to the seat in 2001 and 2005 but retired just before the 2008 election.
In January 2008, Hodson-Thomas announced that she will retire from politics at the end of her term. She left the party as a result of a bitter leadership feud between Paul Omodei and current leader Troy Buswell, and after Buswell had made inappropriate sexist comments to her in front of a large number of male colleagues, for which Buswell later apologised. She went on to remark that the state parliament was a boys club and the male members need to lift their standards.
