Dean was re-elected as District & Town Councillor for Alton Eastbrooke on 7th May 2015. At that time he said, "I am seeking re-election because I am passionate about Alton Eastbrooke and meeting the needs of residents. I launched the Eastbrooke Project, which brings agencies and funds directly into our ward to help not just the vulnerable, but all of us. This project gave birth to Alton Eastbrooke & Wooteys Residents Association. I’m Altonian, born and bred and the issues which affect you also affect me.
