Senator Luther Olsen
Madison…Senator Luther Olsen (R-Ripon) released the following statement today after hearing of the death of former State Senator Mike Ellis.
“Mike Ellis was a true friend and a dedicated legislator. I spent many hours in his office, in front of his famous blackboard, taking about public policy and the state’s finances. Mike was a leader in the Senate who took on tough policy issues with a sharp mind and a thoughtful eye. We all missed Mike when he retired from the Senate. Today, I miss him as a confidante and friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
