Now that Gloria Molina has won election to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Latinos are looking ahead to other political races. For all the understandable focus on the state's largest metropolitan area, no one should overlook Santa Barbara, which last year almost elected the nation's first Mexican-American congresswoman. Democrat Anita Perez Ferguson nearly defeated an eight-term incumbent in a district that has almost always sent Republicans to Washington.

Many Southern Californians expressed little sympathy for drought-weary Santa Barbara as water rates tripled, lawns turned brown and vegetation withered and died. Santa Barbara deserved its fate, critics of the city's water policy said. Residents had the chance to obtain an additional water supply in 1979, but rejected it when they voted against tying into the State Water Project, partly to control growth. Now residents have another chance--a final chance--for state water.

Lagomarsino, the only congressman in California to lose his seat in the primary election, have urged the veteran lawmaker to run as an independent candidate for the 22nd Congressional District seat in the fall. An aide to Lagomarsino (R-Ventura) said supporters have contacted the congressman to encourage him to try again for the slot representing Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

If the people of this fast-growing region west of Santa Barbara don't get their own city soon, it won't be for lack of trying. Local activists have put the question of cityhood to voters three times in the last 12 years. Three times, voters said no. But Goleta Now!, the latest incarnation of advocates to give cityhood a try, thinks it may have a winner. Like movie makers who tailor a film to fit the dictates of a focus group, Goleta Now!
