      A similar measure in Ventura County, California was resoundingly defeated.

      And the recent update of the Downtown (Ventura) Specific Plan includes
      serious consideration of a future rail station downtown.

      And Metrolink was recently extended.

      And a local organization has formed to push for real passenger rail service
      between here and Santa Barbara (where locals have fought off attempts to
      widen the 101 freeway for years):
