Sacramento, CA – The California State Senate and Assembly recognized California’s Women of the Year on Monday in the State Capitol where each Senator recognized one woman from their district for their courage and leadership. Senator Brian Jones’ selection from Senate District 38 was Dee Dean of Alpine who was recognized for her extensive record of inspirational service to the citizens of East San Diego County.

“Dee Dean is worthy of this prestigious recognition because her service and her story have touched so many lives in East County. As the publisher of the East County Herald for more than 20 years and a leader in the business community, she worked hard to create opportunities for all East County citizens to prosper,” Jones commented after the ceremony. “Dee has also battled Multiple Sclerosis with an indomitable spirit, and she has used her experience to educate the public and inspire others facing similar battles. It was an honor to recognize Dee with this award,” Jones added.

Dean has also helped build up local community organizations such as St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center and Stoney’s Kids Legacy.

As part of Women’s History Month, the Women of the Year were recognized by the Senators themselves during a ceremony that took place on the Senate floor during an official session.

Senator Brian W. Jones was elected to the State Senate in 2018 and represents the 38th Senate District in the California Legislature, which includes Lemon Grove, El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee, Poway, Escondido, San Marcos, Lakeside, Valley Center, Rancho Santa Fe, Julian, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, Bonsall, Borrego Springs, and Fallbrook.
