A voter registration campaign aimed at increasing the political clout of Latinos is kicking off here today with a push to register 1,500 new residents before the November election. But some say that target, set by a local arm of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, is too modest, especially in a county where nearly a quarter of the voting-age population is Latino.

Campaign placards touting candidates for a little-known water board outnumber signs for all other races in this community where the issue of sufficient water to quench the thirst of booming development is a hot topic. Seven challengers are seeking to unseat three incumbents on the Castaic Lake Water Agency, which is the sole wholesaler of state water supplies to four water retailers.

With potentially millions of dollars at stake, some Ventura County growers joined Democratic challenger Michael Case in condemning Rep. Elton Gallegly for failing to state how he will vote today on whether to normalize U.S. trade relations with China. Some farmers criticized Gallegly, a Simi Valley Republican, for remaining undecided on such watershed legislation that could result in an economic boon for the county.

There is a reason Supervisor John Flynn hasn't lost an election in 20 years. On a day when both his challengers in the March primary are busy with other business, a day threatening rain and quickly losing light, the 67-year-old incumbent is knocking on doors in a blue-collar neighborhood where the houses are guarded by iron bars and snarling watchdogs.

A 40-year Democratic slide continued this week as Ventura County voter registration closed for the March 7 primary election, and Republicans celebrated a 2,000-voter gain over the Democrats since Labor Day. Just 38.6% of the county's 367,096 qualified voters are now Democrats, compared with 60.2% in 1960, when the county was still primarily rural and filled with old Roosevelt and Truman Democrats. Republicans, meanwhile, have boosted their numbers from 37.

Mudslinging is as old as politics, but in Ventura County candidates had better mind their words, at least in their ballot statements, a judge ruled Friday. Judge Henry Walsh ruled that Camarillo Councilman Mike Morgan must eliminate parts of his ballot statement in which he disparaged Supervisor Kathy Long, his November supervisor's race opponent.

Talk about bad timing. Just as Ventura County Supervisor Judy Mikels began to focus on higher office, the new chief administrator resigned, saying he'd found overwhelming problems in county government that the Board of Supervisors lacked the political will to fix. For Mikels, that huge dose of bad news came as she was girding for a sprint to the March 7 primary election, and already fighting an uphill battle against Assemblyman Tom McClintock to replace state Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley).

Albert Goldberg decided to run for Congress a day before the deadline in December. "It was just the events of the news," he explained. "The need to pass a national hate-crimes law and spread the view of love, peace and understanding through all of mankind. "Also,' he added, "I didn't want to do it without checking with my wife. And I was kind of scared to ask her."

Attorney Michael Case, a Democrat and president-elect of the Ventura County Bar Assn., will challenge Republican Rep. Elton Gallegly next year, Case said Thursday. Case, a 52-year-old political neophyte, said he will formally announce his run for Congress at a press conference next week. "I don't think Elton's views are any longer in sync with the majority in this county," said Case, a founding partner of Ventura's largest law firm.
