It is unfortunate to see you attempt to malign Rep. Anthony Beilenson over his postage expenditures. He is the only representative in Washington who I feel communicates with me about what is going on there. Further, he is the only one I have ever met in my own neighborhood and who has taken the time to come here for community meetings. I would much rather see him spend the postage to inform us of what it happening and what issues are current, and of upcoming meetings, than just to fly in for the photo opportunities around disasters.

With Congress poised to recess for the rest of the year, retiring Reps. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) and Carlos J. Moorhead (R-Glendale) have begun the humbling transformation from congressman to regular guy. "Everybody who works in Congress or serves in Congress knows this day comes," said David Joergenson, a longtime Moorhead aide who is hustling for a new job himself. "It comes sooner for some, later for others.

Re: "Beilenson Won't Seek Reelection Next Year," (Nov. 2): Although I wish Rep. Anthony Beilenson all the best, I am saddened by his impending departure. As an avid hiker, I can especially appreciate Beilenson's [role in the] creation of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and am uneasy with its future, particularly since greedy political pundits in both the House and Senate have recently targeted open space as unnecessary for federal funding. It frightens me that Beilenson's successor may not be as dedicated to or as concerned with this very important acquisition.

If federal elections records are any indication, this year's race to fill Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson's seat in Congress could turn out to be one of the most expensive in the nation. Brad Sherman, a Democrat who is seeking to represent the 24th Congressional District--which stretches from Thousand Oaks to Sherman Oaks and Malibu--ranked among the nation's top campaign self-financers by infusing $275,000 into his coffers.

I would like to commend your paper for the debate you printed in the Ventura County Edition on Sunday, June 27, between Rep. Elton Gallegly and Rep. Anthony Beilenson. I am a supporter of Congressman Gallegly and welcomed this opportunity for these men to express their views on the issues. Congressman Gallegly represents the people in his attempt to better control illegal immigration, reduce capital gains tax and keep "hands off" the Social Security trust fund. And he knows that taxes themselves will not stimulate the economy.

Rep. Anthony Beilenson recently requested $33 million from the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior. Beilenson said that the National Parks Service would use the money for a high priority acquisition such as the Soka University site in Calabasas. The fact is that Soka University is not for sale. Rep. Beilenson, therefore, is tacitly requesting the condemnation of private property. This is an assault on the Fourth Amendment rights of every citizen. There is no consensus for this action in our community.

I appreciate The Times' giving so much publicity to Richard Sybert, the most likely challenger of Rep. Anthony Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills). And now you report that the Cable News Network has joined the fight against Beilenson as well (Political Briefing, March 4). Good! Beilenson is dangerous in that he is not controlled by any special interests and will not accept funds from political action committees. If he keeps winning elections to Congress with no obligation to anyone other than his constituents and his conscience, it could set a dangerous precedent.

Congratulations to John Schwada for a most accurate story on the first debate between Rep. Anthony Beilenson and his opponent, Richard Sybert ("Beilenson Backs Democrats in Debate with GOP's Rich Sybert," Oct. 12). I was present Tuesday morning when they spoke to us seniors. It was most refreshing to hear Rep. Beilenson speak about all the accomplishments of the present Administration and not deride Mr. Sybert. I am sick and tired of all the berating that people running for office do against one another.

Regarding your editorial on Rep. Anthony Beilenson, "A Fighter For His District" (Nov. 12): While I do not share your enthusiasm for his liberal politics, I certainly recognize Tony Beilenson's long devotion to public service. I wish both him and Mrs. Beilenson well. In particular, I recognize his contribution to the Santa Monica Mountains, on whose conservancy board I serve, and for that reason have initiated an effort to name a significant feature in the park after him. I do think it is time for fresh approaches in Congress and in the nation as a whole.

As an educator, I am profoundly disturbed by the legislation proposed by Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) and supported by Rep. Anthony Beilenson (D-Los Angeles), to deny U.S.-born children of undocumented parents the right to U.S. citizenship. Studies show that immigrants contribute to the economy with their labor, taxes and as consumers. They are willing to work long hours at jobs other Americans don't want and suffer insults and discrimination in exchange for the hope of a better life for their children.

Rep. Anthony Beilenson is being less than honest when he denies that he uses the congressional "franking" privilege to send out campaign mail ("Beilenson Criticized Over Publicly Funded Mailers," Feb. 10). It's just too coincidental that he sends out his heaviest mail just before the cutoff date before an election or that he uses his campaign manager to put it together. To also say, as his spokesman apparently did, that "his mailers are not politically motivated" is hilarious. He never used free campaign mail so heavily until he moved into a more conservative district, and most of his mailers have tried to artfully construct a more conservative image for Beilenson on issues like crime and illegal immigration.

I write to express my personal disappointment at both the manner and content of your Oct. 26 editorial endorsement of Rep. Anthony Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills). The lack of analysis and factual errors disserve your readers. Most of all, the frankly snide tone reinforces the notion that The Times is neither open to new ideas nor prepared to oppose any incumbents. It is clear that your editorial went out of its way to mischaracterize me on conservative issues in an attempt to bolster the incumbent: You criticize me for calling defense conversion "industrial welfare."

I strongly suggest that Marc Litchman have third thoughts about conventional wisdom. His piece "Second Thoughts About Conventional Wisdom" (Valley Commentary, Sept. 11) shows little of what one might expect of a political consultant and a lot of what would come from someone on Rep. Anthony Beilenson's staff. He needs to go beyond his "second thoughts" in these areas: The race in the 24th Congressional District is not about the relative numbers of Republicans and Democrats.

I am writing in response to a letter to the editor written by Richard P. Sybert, published on Sept. 8, regarding your Aug. 29 article on immigration reform ("Beilenson, Gallegly Ideas in U.S. Spotlight"). I feel that Sybert is being ingenuous with an issue that is too important to this country to be trivialized with partisan politics. My company, Security Imaging Corp., has developed a unique photoengraving technology that we have been demonstrating to members of Congress over the past several months.

Republican congressional challenger Richard Sybert got a helping hand from GOP heavyweights Jack Kemp and William Bennett on Wednesday at a fund-raiser that grossed $75,000 for Sybert's campaign against Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills).

People have been out to get U.S. Rep. Anthony Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) for 18 years. It's not only the candidates who have run against him since 1976. It's even other elected officials who have twice tried to reapportion him back to his private law practice. Each time, Beilenson has beaten back the challenges to hold on to his seat while the pundits were writing his political obituary.
