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.

Wisconsin Shares scammer convicted

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

“A Milwaukee man was convicted by a jury Thursday on two counts of felony theft in a rip-off of the state's subsidized child care program, known as Wisconsin Shares.


“Mark Rouse, 38, will be sentenced July 22 by Circuit Judge David Hansher. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine on each count.”


Fraud like this robs Wisconsin taxpayers of their hard-earned money. I applaud state Department of Children and Families Secretary Eloise Anderson and law enforcement for cracking down on this fraudulent behavior.
