The Monterey County Weekly, October 7, 2010


State Assembly District 28 - Luis Alejo


The young Watsonville mayor’s assets were impressive enough to knock out seasoned Dem opponent Janet Barnes—who’s now bidding to keep her Salinas City Council seat—in the June primary.


We like not only Alejo’s ...intelligence and energy, but also his blue-collar roots (his parents were migrant farm workers), his time in the trenches (teaching at-risk high school students) and his legal experience (as a staff attorney for Monterey County Superior Court and California Rural Legal Assistance).


In a historically Democratic and largely Latino district, Alejo is well positioned to trounce Republican opponent Robert Bernosky and succeed Anna Caballero. We’re confident Alejo will be a strong, progressive voice para la gente in Sacramento.
