Ellis' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
|“||We can have a healthy environment and a healthy economy. We must encourage economic development while preserving the clean and healthful environment we all hold dear. I’ve spent the last thirty years advocating for clean water, wildlife, and open space and look forward to continuing to champion these causes in the legislature.
Everyone in our community should have basic life provisions, including food, shelter, and access to healthcare. I strongly support the expanding Medicaid to provide coverage for over 60,000 Montanans.
High-quality public education is the linchpin of our democracy and key to Montana’s economic future. My son is the product of Helena public schools and his teachers prepared him well to succeed in college. We must continue to support our public schools and teachers as they work to improve graduation rates and to assure that all Montana students can reach their full potential.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
