Solano County’s Child Abuse Prevention Council named state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, its 2013 Legislator of the Year last week for her work to protect children and promote their well-being.

“Senator Wolk has been a steadfast champion of child well-being for many years, even before becoming a legislator,” said Kim Thomas, executive director of Children’s Network of Solano County, a partner of the Child Abuse Council. “She is one of those rare individuals who is strong, smart and very effective at getting things done, and yet remains a kind, compassionate and fair person.”

Thomas, who nominated Wolk for the honor, described the senate as a “behind-the-scenes advocate” in Sacramento who works to assure that the needs of Solano children are fairly addressed in areas such as child care services and child abuse prevention funding.

“In my experience there has never been a time when Senator Wolk was not ready, willing and most able at finding a way to help children get what they need to thrive,” Thomas said. “The proud mother of two successful sons and grandmother to five wonderful grandchildren, her insight is grounded in the real-world experience of raising children. Solano County is very fortunate to have her as our state senator.”

Wolk has authored numerous bills to support and protect the health and well-being of children, including legislation to:

* Support domestic violence prevention and intervention services for victims and their families in Solano County;

* Enable the continuing operation of a successful program that provides temporary emergency care for the young children of families in crisis;

* Simplify access to Cal Works and Food Stamps for struggling families; and

* Accelerate the processing of birth certificates for adoption of foster children.
