California legislator Deirdre Alpert served as a State Assembly Member from 1990-1996, and as a State Senator from 1996-2004.
The Deirdre Alpert Papers consist of 22 cubic feet of records reflecting the interests and political activities of Alpert
during her 14 years in the California State Legislature. The records contain two series: bill files and subject files from
1990 to 2004.
California legislator Deirdre Alpert, also known as Dede, was born on October 6, 1945 in New York City. She moved with her
family and established residence in California in 1962, studying government at Pomona College. Deirdre married Michael Alpert
in Los Angeles and moved back to the San Diego region in 1975. The couple produced three daughters, Alison, Kristin, and
Lehn. She was a member of the Solana Beach School District Board from 1983 until her election to the California Assembly
in 1990, serving as Board president in 1987. During this period, the Solana Beach School District began before-and-after
school childcare and preschool programs, created the county's first infant care center, and had two schools recognized by
California as distinguished schools.
