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.
I’ve written extensively about New Berlin’s need for city of Milwaukee water and Milwaukee’s requirement that certain conditions be met before New Berlin gets water.
Milwaukee is insisting that New Berlin provide low-income housing and mass transit in exchange for much-need public drinking water.
Now Brookfield and Elm Grove are considering getting involved in negotiations for Milwaukee water.
If they do, I am curious to see what Milwaukee will ask those suburbs to offer in return.
