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.

They are unable to vote, however, they inform Wisconsin gubernatorial candidates about their position on issues.

The Wisconsin Council on Children and Families invited students from across the state in grades KG through eight write letters to Scott Walker and Tom Barrett.

“Right now, thousands of families in Wisconsin are struggling. I think you should lower taxes, and kill tax increase, because my family needs lower taxes. Wisconsin also needs crime rate lowered, because children are being injured, and sometimes killed. Families in Wisconsin want to make Wisconsin a better state, so you should do that.”

Sasha, we sure could use you in the state Senate!
