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.
Time Warner Cable customers no longer receive state government coverage from WisconsinEye. Time Warner dropped WisconsinEye at midnight Monday, Aug. 31, 2009.
The Green Bay Press Gazette is editorializing for the cable channel to return:
“The privately owned cable television station does a solid job of providing coverage of legislative action from a network of 70 video cameras around the State Capitol.
In fact, when Democratic leaders preparing the 2009-2011 budget were accused of late-night shenanigans and hiding from the public, they countered that interested citizens could have watched all of the debate from the comfort of their living rooms on WisconsinEye.
Now it's not available to a large group of cable subscribers. And that's a shame.”
