Luis Alejo graduated from UC Berkley with dual bachelor’s degrees in political science and Chicano studies. He earned a law degree at UC Davis and later attended Harvard University, where he received a master’s of education degree in administration, planning and social policy. He served as vice mayor and mayor of his hometown, Watsonville, and was first elected to the Assembly in 2010 to represent the 28th Assembly District. In 2012 he was re-elected to the newly formed 30th District—and in 2016, he was elected to Monterey County Board of Supervisors. He represents District 1, which covers most of urban Salinas.


Alejo serves on the executive board of the California State Association of Counties, as the chair of the Transportation Agency of Monterey County, and on the boards of Monterey-Salinas Transit and the Salinas Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency. He is the co-chair of the Community Alliance for Safety and Peace and also serves on the County Budget, Legislative, Cannabis, Health and Human Services, Equal Opportunity, Military and Veterans Affairs, Remote Access Network, Human Resources, and Health, Housing and Human Services committees. 


Notable quote: “During these challenging times combating the spread of COVID-19, we’re seeing so many local courageous people step up to care of each other in our communities. From first responders and health care professionals who are testing and treating those who are sick to our local school district staff who are preparing free meals for thousands of school children. But there are also thousands of other essential workers who wake up early every day, say goodbye to their families and go work harvesting crops in the fields and vineyards or at food processing plants across our state to ensure our stable food supply.” (Source: Medium.com)
