Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

New Business Filings Increase

Small business is the engine of any robust economy.  Small businesses create jobs and can be an indicator of optimism and confidence in the economy.  After all, entrepreneurs do not want to start a business at a time of economic pessimism or uncertainty.

The Department of Financial Institutions reports the number of new businesses started in Wisconsin during 2011 increased two percent over 2010 numbers.  This is another positive sign for Wisconsin’s economy, adding jobs for the first time in five years, and complements a Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce report about 94 percent of employers feeling confident about the direction of our state.
