The League of Women Voters of Nebraska welcomes its new co-president, Claudia Stevenson, of Ogallala.

Stevenson succeeds MaryLee Moulton of Omaha, who served has served as co-president or president of the LWVNE since April 2021. Her appointment became official following the 2024 LWVNE annual meeting on April 6.

She will serve with her daughter, Janelle Stevenson of Lincoln, who became co-president of the LWVNE in April 2023.

Prior to serving as co-president, Stevenson was co-director and then director of natural resources and energy for the LWVNE from April 2023 through March 2024. Her first role with the LWVNE was as co-director of voter services for the 2021-2023 term where she helped implement the VOTE411 database for tracking candidates for local, county, district, state and federal office in Nebraska.

A graduate of Ohio State University, Stevenson worked for DeKalb Swine Breeders before becoming a soil conservationist with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Kansas.

She worked with farmers and ranchers on private conservation lands for the next 34 years, the last 30 from her base at Ogallala.  

As an at-large member of the LWVNE, Stevenson sees part of her role with the League as being an educator and advocate for League positions on public policy in a part of the state that does not have a local League.

Like her daughter, Stevenson firmly believes in the League and its value to the state. “It offers so much good information, such good references. And it’s nonpartisan, just for the good of the people, not for one side or the other.”
