Mary Lazich “Lifetime of Service” Awards Luncheon
Mary’s long career representing the city goes back to the New Berlin Common Council where she served from 1986 to 1992. Mary expanded the reach of her representation when elected to the Waukesha County board of supervisors serving from 1990 to 1993.
Mary was elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1993 and served as a representative of the area until 1999. She was elected to the Wisconsin State Senate in 1998 where she represented the 28th district from 1998 to 2017. Mary was the Majority Caucus Chairperson in 2003 and served as the President of the Senate from 2015 to 2017.
After a long and distinguished career Mary decided not to seek re-election in 2016 and is now enjoying time with family in her retirement from public service.
As a long, loyal friend and resident of New Berlin, the chamber is happy to honor Mary with this Lifetime of Service award.
Mary received a Congressional certificate from House Speaker Paul Ryan, a plaque from the state Legislature presented by state Senator Leah Vukmir and state Representative Mike Kuglitsch, the Key to the City of New Berlin from Mayor Dave Ament, and a personal e-mail of congratulations sent just before the luncheon from Governor Walker.
