Beth Taggart - Interim Executive Director
Long-time League members might remember Beth Taggart's name, as she was the Legislative Coordinator of LWVO throughout the 1990s, one of three paid staff people in the era before the League had an executive director.  In the early 2000's, she served on the LWVO Board.  In 1997, Beth represented LWVUS in Hungary, training Hungarian civic leaders in effective advocacy.

Beth is a past president of the LWV of Metro Columbus. She served on the LWVMC  Board multiple times, and as Voter Editor, Program Chair, Communications Chair, and member of Voter Service, Development, and Nominating committees.
 
Beth has also worked as the Public Information Officer for the Governor's Community Service Council, and as a nonfiction book editor at Prometheus Books.  She has a BS in Public Policy from Cornell University.

Beth brings an institutional knowledge of LWVO and the Ed Fund; local League leadership experience; written, oral, graphic, and social media communication aptitude; advocacy and citizen education experience; and organizational/planning skills. 
 
She lives in Columbus with her husband Brent (a League member well-loved as the political comedian/auctioneer at the LWVMC Holiday Action) and daughter Abby, who, as a high school sophomore, helped answer phones at the League's Election Day Phone Bank at Channel 10 for the first time in 2017.

Beth spends her time volunteering for her local League, the school, and the community.  She will happily return to being a "mom who volunteers" when LWVO hires its next outstanding Executive Director.
