BREAKING NEWS – Governor Deal has proposed cutting ALL state funds for domestic violence—leaving the Department of Health Services’ Family Violence Division entirely dependent on Federal TANF and grant funds. The details are here in the DHS’s budget presentation.
Bottom line, Nathan Deal zeroed out all 4 million-plus dollars the state spends on protecting women and children. Gone. Poof. Nada. And he wants it gone immediately—both for the FY2011 amended budget and the FY2012 budget. Of course this is just the “proposal” and it will all be reviewed in committee. Regardless, this move is shocking and very dangerous.
While other divisions took cuts, for sure, the only one other zeoroed out program was the Support for Needy Families Work Assistance Program. What does this say for Governor Deal? It says that he does not find these issues to be a priority and if we want women and children to be safe, well, the Federal government better come through with the funding, because Nathan Deal is not going to do a darn thing.
God forbid we look for alternate revenue sources, much less hold off on that corporate tax break. It’s only hundreds of women and children dying preventable deaths every year.

We thank our outgoing officers – Amy Morton, Chair, Allie Kelly, Vice Chair, Kathy Floyd, Secretary, and Jenna Moore Colvin, Treasurer -who have provided countless hours of hard work for WIN List. We want to especially recognize Amy who has been instrumental in leading WIN List to our successes of 2010.
Under Amy’s direction as Chair of the organization, WIN List has:
- Elected 26 of 28 endorsed women and took back a Republican-held seat in the Georgia legislature.
- Hired its first full time staff member, Executive Director, Anna Beck.
- Launched WIN Corp, a program to train young women and then place them as regional field directors to provide campaign support for our endorsed women.
- Taken a “hands on approach” in the races of some of endorsed women to make sure that they could WIN on election day.
- Developed a women voter turnout model through Georgia Women Vote.
Although Amy and Kathy are rotating off the Executive Committee, the good news for WIN List is that both will continue on the Board to provide additional support as we move forward in helping women WIN in 2012!
Georgia's WIN List is a political action committee dedicated to changing the face of power in Georgia politics by recruiting, training, supporting, and electing Democratic women who will serve as effective advocates for the issues most important to women and their families.
