Date: 
March 7, 2017

MADISON, WI – Don M. Millis, an original member of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, resigned from the commission on Friday due to work commitments.  Monday, Jodi Jensen was appointed to fill the position by Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald.

“It has been my great pleasure and honor to serve the people of Wisconsin as a member of the Commission. However, the obligations of my law practice will make it impossible for me to continue in this role,” Millis said in his resignation letter. 

Millis, an attorney with Reinhart, Boerner Van Deuren S.C., is a resident of Sun Prairie.  He had previously served on the State Elections Board.

Commission Chair Mark Thomsen thanked Millis for his service to the Commission during its early days and organizational period.  “Don’s bi-partisan approach was a major asset to the Commission as we tackled issues related to voter photo ID and the presidential recount,” Thomsen said.  “We thank Don and wish him all the best.”

Jensen is an attorney at Godfrey & Kahn S.C., in Madison.  A graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, Jensen previously served as chief of staff to the Wisconsin State Assembly majority leader and speaker, as staff to the Legislature’s budget-writing Joint Finance Committee, as an executive staff member at the Wisconsin Department of Administration and as legal counsel to the governor of Wisconsin.
