Same Sex Ruling Unfortunate

The ruling by Judge Crabb regarding same sex marriage is disappointing. The incomplete nature of Judge Crabb’s ruling is either intentional or incompetent. I suspect it is the former. It has created a lot of confusion and uncertainty across the state.

It is unfortunate today that it seems every political issue has to be tampered with by an over-active judiciary.

I have confidence in the ability of Wisconsin Attorney General JB Van Hollen to handle the legal matters for the state competently and efficiently.

Heterosexuals have laid claim to the word marriage, and, as a legislator, I will protect that claim. I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. This relationship is natural and sacred.

Homosexuals are free citizens of our country and are deserving of fairness and respect. A just society does not discriminate against any one group of people. It does not extend benefits to one group while not extending the same benefits to all groups. A just society protects individual liberties and every person’s right to pursue happiness within the confines of the law.

I support the actions of the voters of Wisconsin when they acted to amend the State Constitution in 2006. There is a political process where the people of Wisconsin have a say in the law, and I wholeheartedly support that legitimate process.

Senator Lazich’s support builds on Allen’s growing community recognition and reflects her confidence in Scott Allen’s conservative vision, experience and leadership ability. “I’m excited to have Senator Lazich’s encouragement and support.
