(Juneau) Former Wisconsin Senate President Mike Ellis passed away Friday. The Republican from Neenah spent roughly 44 years in the Legislature, 12 in the Assembly and 32 in the Senate. Ellis has also served as Senate majority and minority leader. Senator Scott Fitzgerald from Juneau says Ellis’ personality and character were only outmatched by his dedication to public service and says he fought for his constituents. Ellis was 77-years-old.
