Hall County Solicitor-General Stephanie D. Woodard has been appointed by Gov. Nathan Deal as a new member of the state Commission on Family Violence.

“All Georgians will benefit from Solicitor-General Woodard’s service on the commission, which works with communities and systems across the state to provide leadership in strengthening Georgia’s families by ending family violence,” Patrise M. Perkins-Hooker, president of the State Bar of Georgia, said in a statement, “Solicitor-General Woodard’s acceptance of this post is evidence of her continued dedication to serving the public and the justice system.”

The commission publishes reports on family violence trends and the adequacy of interdiction laws, and will co-sponsor the Stop Violence Against Women Day on Feb. 3 at the state Capitol in Atlanta.

There are 37 members on the commission, including lawmakers, the attorney general and the director of the Division of Family and Children Services.

Woodard was appointed to serve as Hall County’s chief prosecutor of misdemeanors by Gov. Sonny Perdue beginning in 2009. A Republican, she was then elected to the post in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.
