State Senator Mary Lazich revamps her staff

Confirmed as dismissed: Kevin Fischer

You’ll need to be a long-time reader to understand the importance of that news. This is still my all-favorite Fischerism:

If you want the whole sordid history from FC you can click to search.

I have to ask what finally did it, though. Fischer’s been out playing in his own field for years, but Lazich never responded. Even press like this from Milwaukee Magazine didn’t seem to touch the guy.

Perhaps no one exemplifies the sort of juvenile name calling that goes on better than Kevin Fischer, a longtime Republican operative who works as a legislative aide to state Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin). Fischer is a Franklin blogger who has accused the city’s school board and administration of being “unethical” and has engaged in a running battle with blogger Greg Kowalski, a college student who is on the Franklin Environmental Commission. Fischer called Kowalski “cheesecake breath” in a comment on Kowalski’s blog in January, and barred Kowalski from commenting on Fischer’s blog.

So what happened? Anyone know? It looks like Fischer wasn’t the only staffer the Senator tossed, but he’s the only one we’ll talk about for now. I will also proclaim that all things sort themselves out in time. 😉

By the way, I ran across this handy listing of State Senators and staff. Here’s the equivalent for the Assembly members and staff.

I’ve already contacted my new State Senator Rich Zipperer about something, and I’m tickled to say his office responded in the same day. More about that in the next couple of weeks.


  1. J. Strupp says:

    I thought Christmas was 2 weeks ago Cindy?

    It’s about friggin’ time Lazich.

    I’ll leave it at that (although I REALLY don’t want to).

  2. I wonder who’ll blog for Lazich now.

  3. Who knows. Maybe Walker’s administration is going to pick him up for something. Time will tell.

  4. BrkfldDad says:

    Gad, I hope not…

  5. I would be very disappointed if the Walker administration gave Kevin Fisher a position.

  6. J. Strupp says:

    Maybe Walker could use someone to blog for him. He could be the Scott’s Minister of Propaganda.

    I see a future there. 🙂

  7. Actually, I heard today that former Brookfield Mayor Jeff Speaker had high hopes for an appointment as well.

    All hail the political class.

  8. I was just wondering what good old Jeff was doing now.

    well well well ….

    I’m back from a week long business conference in Orlando … and yes it was work… unless you go to these things you think that ppl are on vacation. My days started at 6am .. and I was back in the room at 9 or 10pm every night for a week. Sat in meetings all day … it’s work believe me.

    What a wonderful post Christmas present to have upon my return to see that Kevin was finally whacked. He was a vindictive moron representing a narrow point of view (similar to the point on the top of his head)

    (see Pat .. didn’t you miss me?)

    Now who will blog for Lazich .. because she’s an idiot’s idiot and can’t put two thoughts together without help of some kind.


    On the other hand… Pass the wine … let’s put Ament back in office for Milw Co Exec.
