Smyth Named Legislator Of Year By Domestic Violence Coalition

cameronsmythBi-Partisan Leadership Results in Award from Domestic Violence Coalition

The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence has named Assemblyman Cameron Smyth as Legislator of the Year for 2009.  The award was given in recognition of Smyth’s efforts to restore funding to domestic violence programs throughout the state after the Governor’s line-item veto last year.

 

“It is truly humbling to receive this award,” said Smyth.  “The hard work we did last year to restore funding for these critical programs was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in Sacramento.  It appears we have our work cut out for us again this year, but I look forward to working with the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence to find a permanent solution to the domestic violence funding problem.”

In 2009, Smyth co-authored legislation with Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) to approve a $16.3 million loan from the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Fund to offset the elimination of domestic violence program funding.

“As we head into another difficult budget year, one of my top priorities will be getting the Republican caucus to engage on this issue,” said Smyth.  “Protecting victims of domestic violence should not be a partisan issue.  I am committed to fighting for domestic violence funding restoration, and I am eager to once again work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle.”

The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is a statewide membership-based coalition with a mission to provide a united voice for victims and advocates of ending domestic violence.  The coalition provides statewide leadership on public policy issues relating to domestic violence prevention, and serves as a resource for victims seeking shelters, legal resources, and other domestic violence services.
