Two members of the state Legislature, two long-departed county supervisors, and even a phone call from an ex-President. Probably no tract map hearing for an already approved housing development has ever drawn as much attention — or as strong a cast of characters — as the group that showed up in Ventura on Tuesday. They came out for a Ventura County Board of Supervisors meeting regarding the Ahmanson Ranch project on the edge of Los Angeles.
