I've just been reading about all the money Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Los Angeles) wants to spend on the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. In light of the large deficit that this country is running, I would compare him to a man whose children are hungry and he wants to spend money on a vacation. I am really amazed at this wastefulness.

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.

The letter by Janice Rubenstein criticizing Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Los Angeles) for supporting the acquisition of open space in the Santa Monica Mountains certainly does not reflect the views of most residents of Encino and other adjacent communities. When developers bulldoze our mountains and recreational areas, all of us suffer the consequences. Although the current budgetary crisis will result in less money being available for park purposes, it would be foolish to abandon all efforts to preserve the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

Richard Sybert keeps complaining about Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson's closing of his Thousand Oaks office. Now I understand that as Mr. Sybert was defeated in his bid against Beilenson, he has an ax to grind. However, I think he makes a mistake in chastising the congressman for his efforts in trying to reduce expenses. Most people in the 24th District understand that everyone in government has to do their part in reducing spending. The congressman's office is still reached by a toll-free call.

In your Aug. 26 edition you report that I would redistrict Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson's seat so as to turn it Republican. This contention is totally false. While I may or may not have some input, I most certainly will not use what ever influence I may have to destroy the career of a fellow Democrat. Rep. Beilenson and I have been friends and colleagues for two decades. Had your reporter checked with me, he would have learned that I have no desire to bring about such a change. REP. HENRY WAXMAN 24th Congressional District

I was appalled and shocked to read that Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) voted to kill the space station! I am not an aerospace worker, just a citizen who is very concerned about the depressed economy in the San Fernando Valley. Doesn't Beilenson care about real people and jobs, jobs, jobs? Unless he was misquoted in the Times article, he seemed to favor tax dollars' being used for unemployment benefits, welfare payments and food stamps. What is he actually doing to save jobs in the Valley?

In a story in the Valley Edition ("Campaigns Cross District Lines to Tap Wealthiest Areas," Feb. 2), we learned that Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Los Angeles) is one of 14 lawmakers nationwide who doesn't take Political Action Committees'--lobbyists'--contributions, is one of the few in Congress who spent less as an incumbent than his challenger, and received the vast majority of his campaign funds from smaller contributions of his own constituents.

As a strong supporter of improved mass transit in Los Angeles, I commend you on your very good editorial, "L.A.'s Track to the Future," (Aug. 9). Purchasing the railroad rights-of-way currently up for sale would be a wise and farsighted move for L.A. County. the properties being offered are all logical places for commuter rail routes, and there is no question that they could all be re-sold for a substantial profit should the County Transportation Commission eventually decide against using them.

"Berman Feels the Heat Over Defense Cuts" doesn't tell the whole story. Cuts in military spending release funds for work in other sectors that provide more jobs per dollar than military work. It is well documented that building such projects as mass transportation facilities, schools, health facilities--and staffing them--is much more labor intensive than high-tech military work. Moreover, such work improves everybody's standard of living rather than merely creating a stockpile of obsolescent hardware.

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).

As usual, Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson's rhetoric has run smack into his record. During recent deliberations for the 1994 Omnibus Crime Bill, Beilenson used his position on the powerful Rules Committee to kill a number of positive, effective anti-crime amendments, merely because they were Republican-sponsored. So much for bipartisan spirit and an end to gridlock. Among the amendments he helped defeat: - Establishment of a tracking center to help identify, incarcerate and deport illegal immigrants who are criminals.

I support Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson's proposed legislation to restrict the rights of illegal immigrants and their children, including the bill that would deny citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants born in the United States. ("Immigration Bills Decried in Protest at Beilenson Office," Times Valley Edition, March 6.) The proposed bills aren't racist but a means of preservation for the United States and its citizens. America has been taken advantage of long enough.

I was most interested to note that among the financial supporters of the election campaign by Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Los Angeles) was Joseph T. Edmiston of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. The conservancy has been aggressive in its attempt to take over the facilities owned by Soka University. I am concerned that conservancy bureaucrats will take the place of college students, as well as promised cultural and artistic activities. In addition to Beilenson, several public officeholders, including state Senator-elect Tom Hayden (D-Santa Monica)

In response to "Tax Cuts Are Worthless, Even to Buy Votes," by Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson, Commentary, Feb. 25: The clever politician is at it again. Like a good little Democrat, Beilenson begins this election year with the familiar class-baiting refrain--tax the rich. Although the congressman is correct when he states that America needs to improve the skills of our work force, update our infrastructure and invest in education, job training and research and development, he is simply arrogant to suggest that "the richest Americans--those families, earning in excess of $200,000 a year . . ."

Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) has amassed $354,197 in campaign contributions to help him turn back challenges to his reelection in the new congressional district that covers most of Ventura County. Gallegly's campaign treasury dwarfs that of Democrat Anita Perez Ferguson, his only declared opponent in the 23rd Congressional District. She reported having a mere $1,207 in cash for her fledgling campaign as of Dec.
