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.
I received a letter from Dr. Michael Bonds, the Chair of the District Board Appointment Committee at the Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) informing that three members will be appointed to the MATC District Board.
The three-year terms for all three members are effective July 1, 2010 and expire June 30, 2013.
Two of the appointments will be employee members, defined as any person not an employer and receives earnings as payment for personal services, and includes a person acting in the capacity of officer or agent of a labor organization.
The third appointment is for an additional member, defined as a resident of the District.
A public hearing and meeting of the Appointment Committee is scheduled Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. at MATC, Room M616,
I hope the MATC District Board appointment process will be fair.
About a year ago, I blogged about Greg Grambow’s testimony before the WISCONSIN JOBS NOW TASK FORCE in Brown Deer on Monday, March 23, 2009. Grambow had applied for a position on the MATC District Board. I wrote:
“During his testimony, Grambow relayed his experience with MATC, saying he was informed that he was, ‘the wrong sex and color’ for the position. Grambow referred to the response as, ‘institutional bias.’ My office made an inquiry of the Wisconsin Technical College System Policy Advisor about the appointment process for MATC Board members.”
