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.

Not Seeking Re-election

I am announcing that I am not seeking re-election.  It has been an immense honor and pleasure to serve the people of Senate District 28.  During recent years Governor Walker and the Republican led Legislature guided the state through turbulent times.  While the work was hard, the reward is great.  Wisconsin is much more fiscally secure and many government shackles have been opened.  Wisconsin residents and business are much better situated to pursue life with less government intrusion and with freedom to live, educate, and work with greater independence. 

Thank you to my husband, Glenn, my family, friends, and constituents, for prayers, love, and support during many campaigns and my time serving public office.  Thank you to my dedicated staff for working through the turbulent times.  Thank you to my colleagues for electing me to serve as Senate President.  It was a pleasure working with each Senator.  Thank you to the great members of the Wisconsin State Assembly.  Together we worked hard to serve the people of Wisconsin.

During the remainder of my term I will continue to assist constituents and work with colleagues to keep Wisconsin moving forward.


Senator Mary Lazich
