Mary Lazich is a Republican member of the Wisconsin Senate, representing the 28th District since a special election in April 1998. She was previously a member of the Wisconsin Assembly from 1992 through 1998.

Lazich received a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, graduating summa cum laude. She was a New Berlin city councilwoman from 1986 through 1992, and a Waukesha County Board supervisor from 1990 through 1993.

In 2004, Lazich was criticized for lying about her vote for Senate Majority Leader.[1]

2011 recall attempt[edit]

Senator Lazich was the subject of a recall attempt as part of the 2011 Wisconsin protests due to her support of Governor Scott Walker's budget repair bill that repeals collective bargaining on benefits for public employees.[2] However, the recall attempt failed to get enough signatures to be put on the ballot.[citation needed]
