Progressive group gives Assemblyman Luis Alejo a failing grade

 A consortium of liberal watchdog groups handed a long-time Monterey County state legislator an F grade for, they say, voting more conservatively than the district he represents.

Eddie Kurtz, executive director of the lead group, The Courage Campaign, said Luis Alejo, D-Salinas, was placed on its so-called “Hall of Shame” after his voting record was compared to how voters in the 30th Assembly District voted on state ballot initiatives.

“The Hall of Shame includes the state legislators most out of step with their constituents, and most closely aligned with corporate and special interests that exploit Californians,” Kurtz said.

Alejo joined 10 other Assembly members who received an F grade. With the exception of one Republican, all are Democrats.
