Conservatively Speaking

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.

Damage to Capitol at least $7.5 million

The Department of Administration’s chief legal counsel testified in court today it would cost $7.5 million to clean up the damage to the Capitol’s marble walls from the adhesives and tape used by protesters to put up signs around the building. 

Where will $7.5 million come from to pay the bill? Certainly the hard-working taxpayers of Wisconsin do not deserve to get stuck with the bill.


Live ammunition was found at three entrances to the Capitol. Along with the harassment of my colleague Senator Glenn Grothman, this demonstrates the peaceful protest is spiraling out of control in a dangerous and expensive direction.
