Governor honored by L.A. women's group

By Associated Press



Saturday, April 24, 2004 -

SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be honored Monday by a Los Angeles women's group for his work with inner-city children, receiving one of three "Highlight Awards" presented by Women of Los Angeles.

The award recognizes Schwarzenegger for founding and overseeing for nine years After-School All-Stars, which offers sports and other programs to inner-city children in 15 cities.

"That's something that's very important to women," said Sandy Jolley, executive director of Women of Los Angeles, a group of professional women. "It's for that particular work."

The award is Schwarzenegger's first from a major women's group since allegations surfaced during last year's recall campaign that he had groped women on movie sets between 1975 and 2000.

Jolley said she anticipated questions about the appropriateness of the award, but has encountered "absolutely no" feedback from other women's groups. She said the award is only about highlighting the governor's work with children.

As for last year's allegations, "we don't want to go there," Jolley said.

Other honorees Monday include Jorge Mester, music director of the Pasadena Symphony, and Peter W. Mullin, a Los Angeles philanthropist.

Women of Los Angeles is an affiliate of Washington, D.C.-based W.O.M.E.N, Inc. The group was founded in 1991 as Women Organized for Mentoring, Education and Networking.

The nonpartisan groups annually present "highlight" awards to "highly accomplished men" for supporting issues of importance to women. Past honorees include CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan and former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan.

Jolley said the women's group began considering Schwarzenegger for the award before he was elected governor.

His foundation's chief operating officer, Lynn Ann Weaver, was among 10 people killed July 16 when an 86-year-old driver roared through a Santa Monica farmers market. Weaver was the previous director of Women of Los Angeles.
