1987 - Dea Monfort

Dea Monfort (B.A., economics and international relations, ’87) was elected June 13 to a one-year term as executive board president of the AFSCME Local 1902 chapter for retired Southern California water employees. She began working with the labor union two years ago to form the retiree chapter. Before retiring, Monfort worked 25 years for two water utilities, most recently with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. “I am looking forward to working on issues of importance to public sector retirees and to protect the benefits that we earned through our years of service to the communities we provided water to,” she said.
