Watsonville City Councilman and current Mayor Luis Alejo is heavily favored to be elected in the 28th Assembly District, which includes parts of the Pajaro Valley and Watsonville, and southern Santa Clara, San Benito and Monterey counties.

Alejo, a Democrat, has a significant advantage in party registration and a huge margin in campaign fundraising over Republican challenger Robert Bernosky, a Hollister businessman.

Alejo has risen from humble circumstances to become a law graduate of UC Davis with a master's of education from Harvard University. He currently works as a staff attorney with Monterey County Superior Court.

SANTA CRUZ WEEKLY ENDORSES LUIS ALEJO FOR ASSEMBLY

Thursday October 21, 2010

"Current District 28 Assemblymember Anna Caballero is running for state senate, and the candidates looking to replace her are Watsonville mayor Luis Alejo and businessman Robert Bernosky.  A self-made startup expert, Bernosky offers a financial focus but relies on the old Republican formula of shrinking state government-a potential disaster in a state that already suffers from one of the lowest ratios of state workers per resident.  Alejo, by contrast, wants a state more involved in job creation, health care, green tech, gang intervention and education. We find Luis Alejo to be the better choice for the Assembly seat."

Alejo has more political experience, including working in Sacramento as a legislator's aide, watching how laws are drafted, debated and passed. He would not have much of a learning curve to overcome if elected.

MONTEREY COUNTY WEEKLY ENDORSES LUIS ALEJO FOR ASSEMBLY AGAIN

Thursday October 07, 2010

» source

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.
