Bert Stedman (born March 6, 1956) is a Republican member of the Alaska Senate. He was born in Anchorage, grew up in Petersburg and now lives in Sitka. He was appointed by Governor Frank Murkowski in November 2003[1] to the Alaska Senate to represent District A. He now represents District R following redistricting in 2012.

Politically heterodox, Stedman opposed reforms to Alaska's oil tax under Republican governors Sarah Palin and Sean Parnell. Following the precipitous drop in oil prices, Stedman advocated a more fiscally conservative approach to the state's budgeting in 2015.[2]
