Her political career started in Schifflange in 1982. Nelly Stein was a member of the local council for the CSV party for twelve years. A male bastion at that time, Nelly Stein nevertheless found her style to impose herself. From 1994 to 2002, she held the position of mayor. Always ready to help, Nelly succeeded in introducing a new style of leadership and management based on respect and honesty: "In politics you can't do everything, nor can you fulfill everyone's wishes. Often you just need a little common sense". It is certain that this politician has left her mark on municipal politics. Her dedication to the cause, she clearly stated: "In fact, I can not imagine anything more beautiful than to be mayor of my hometown. It would be a useful occupation."
