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.
Today Governor Scott Walker sent a letter to Wisconsin’s Tribal Leaders informing them of his decision to sign Assembly Bill 297 (AB 297) into law, establishing a fair due process for determining mascot appropriateness.
School districts now have a fundamentally fair solution to the mascot debate. The law replaces a system that was an embarrassment to due process. Schools now have a fair opportunity and are not forced to overcome a presumption of guilt in an expensive, divisive process.
