A man who served the Milwaukee County Board as its chairman through political and personal controversy has passed away.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Lee Holloway's passing Thursday morning.

Holloway served the County Board for 18 years, with eight years as its chair.

He served a short stint as county executive when Scott Walker, then in the position, transitioned into the Governor's role.

County Executive Chris Abele also tweeted his reaction.

Holloway faced numerous citations and court battles over properties he owned in the latter part of the last decade. He also faced a sexual harrassment case.
