SALINAS — Monterey County Supervisor Luis Alejo has rescheduled his District 1 mobile office hours this month. The new scheduled date for the mobile office hours is Friday, June 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Outdoor Market/El Mercado Popular at the Salinas Sports Complex, 1034 N. Main St. in Salinas.
