State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. 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.

Voter ID Strengthens
Recently Wisconsin District IV Court of Appeals affirmed the constitutionality of Wisconsin Voter ID law in the League of Women Voters v. Walker ruling. The court determined Voter ID law does not impose an additional qualification on the right to vote; rather it is a voter registration regulation allowing election officials to determine a voter’s name and address. Although this was a major victory, Voter ID law is still on hold due to pending cases in the District II Court of Appeals and United States District Court. Despite the road ahead, I remain confident Voter ID law is constitutional and will ultimately be implemented throughout Wisconsin.
