The misguided recall effort against state Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) flopped. It was apparent weeks ago the colossal waste of time would come up empty when the big mouths behind the recall stopped talking and bragging.
There’s no need to analyze why the recall fizzled. It’s simple. The vast majority of Senator Lazich’s constituents support her and the job she’s doing.
Yours truly has often introduced her at public events by stating that no one, other than her husband, knows first hand how hard the senator works for her district. I chuckle when I read anonymous comments on blogs that she doesn’t respond. Senator Lazich is, and I say this with the utmost respect, obsessed with, and I emphasize thoughtful and thorough constituent communications. With a tight schedule and all her duties in
After being harassed and threatened (and the threats continue even this week), Senator Lazich did not cowardly abdicate her constitutional responsibilities of representation by high-tailing it to another state.
She’s a conservative in a conservative district and always votes the right way.
Friday night, the senator holds a two-hour town hall meeting in
The vast majority of residents in the district simply do not lower themselves to the boorish behavior of the Lazich detractors in the minority. They quietly go about their business, work hard, pay their exorbitant taxes, and then cast their ballots for conservatives. They do not show up at the Capitol to engage in violence and destruction or make despicable threats of murder and rape.
And so I ask supporters of Senator Lazich to take the next step for a public servant who has tirelessly been there for you year after year.
Please plan to attend the town hall meeting Friday night to register your support. You do not have to speak, but if you choose, make a brief statement thanking Senator Lazich for what she has done for so long. A simple thank you would mean a lot. Consider it your flagrant act of democracy against those who have made a mockery of the system since the beginning of the year.
Common sense and decency and respect should always be victorious. Please consider making a stand for those values Friday night at:
6:30 – 8:30 pm
The City Hall is located at
