Senator Janet Ellis
Reelect Janet Ellis to the Montana Senate
A message from Janet Ellis:
I am pleased to announce that I am running for re-election to the Montana Senate in SD 41. It has been an honor to serve you since 2015.
Helena is my home. I married here. My husband and I raised our son here. Living in a community where there is quality public education, open space, and caring neighbors has been a privilege. I want to ensure families can continue to experience the same quality of life we have been able to over the years.
During my four sessions as a legislator, my focus has been on the state budget. In 2021 this work included serving as Minority Vice Chair of Senate Finance & Claims. In the 2021 Legislature I also served on the State Administration committee (which oversees elections and public employee pensions) and on the Agriculture, Livestock, and Irrigation committee.
During 2021-2022, my interim committee work includes 7 committees, including Legislative Finance (which oversees the state budget), Energy & Telecommunications, State Administration and Veterans Affairs (which I chair), American Rescue Plan Act Communications Commission (which oversees broadband internet installation with federal stimulus money), and the Upper Columbia Conservation Council (which oversees aquatic invasive species west of the divide).
Whether in committee or on the floor of the Senate, I see my role as making sure the state works for you while also working to protect our land, air, and water. My commitment today remains the same as it did when I first ran for the legislature: to be an effective advocate for the values Helenans care about—quality education, access to healthcare, assuring fair and open elections, protecting the environment, and improving the economy. I continue to work hard to represent you every day.
