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.
One of the most rewarding and gratifying duties I have as a state Senator is presenting special state plaques of recognition to young men achieving the honor of Eagle Scout.
I thoroughly enjoy the Eagle Scout ceremonies I attend. They are a wonderful testament to the caliber of fine young people.
The Boy Scouts of America is in need of support. That is why I was so pleased to see Rebecca Hagelin, the author of the new best seller, 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family, write a column praising this terrific organization. Hagelin writes, in part:
“It's time someone stand up for the young men of this country. What the nation really needs are more Boy Scouts. And I mean that literally. Scouting doesn't just stop with words and pledges, it shows boys how to become men marked by these invaluable traits.”
I agree wholeheartedly with all Hagelin has to say.
