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.
A nice way to commemorate America’s Independence aside from festivals, parades and fireworks, festivals, is thanking our veterans. In the famous words of Elmer Davis “this nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” It is great to extend a thank you to our brave military people serving our country and to the brave people that served our military.
As always I hope you and your family have a safe and fun holiday weekend, celebrating American’s independence.
