Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino, the only incumbent congressman to go down to defeat in the California primary, knew he was in trouble throughout the campaign, but that hardly softened the blow. Surrounded by aides at his adoptive home Wednesday, the veteran lawmaker said the loss to Michael Huffington, a former Texas oilman who said he would spend whatever it took to win, left him bitter and exhausted. "I never planned to stay until I was carried out," Lagomarsino said.

I read with dismay, but with no surprise, that Rep. Elton Gallegly has used public funds to send two mailings to 95,000 homes that are not currently part of his district, but which will be the next time he runs for election. (It has been estimated that much publicity would cost a challenger $24,000.) Below is an excerpt of a letter I sent to your paper in September, 1988: "Yesterday's mail brought to our home a political mailing that practically consumes itself in unintentional irony.

Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino, making what he called the "hardest political decision" of his 34 years in public office, announced Monday that he will move out of Ventura County to avoid a congressional primary fight with another Republican congressman. Lagomarsino, a Ventura Republican, and Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) were tossed into the same congressional district under the political map being considered by the state Supreme Court.

Ventura County's two incumbent Republican congressmen may be forced to run against each other next year under new political boundaries unveiled by the California Supreme Court on Monday. The court's tentative plan also would shift political districts for the county's five state legislators, pushing incumbents into unfamiliar areas with voters who may be unsympathetic to their political survival.

Thank you for your editorial and the Column Right piece. I have been making these recommendations to Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley), both California senators and New York Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan for many months. It is high time that those workers who toil in the private sector are accorded the same rights that have been given to civil servants at all levels of government, our elected leaders and the military. We and our employers have been paying into Social Security for up to 50 years.

The article "Angry Latino Leaders Decry Gallegly Proposal" Oct. 26 shows a brazen attempt by the Latino politicians to force their will on the citizens of this country. I am a seventh-generation Californian, and I abhor the Latino politicians' efforts to divide and conquer. If the Latino politicians think this is the way to go, they could not be further from the truth. There is no nation on this globe that legally, knowingly provided privileges to illegal individuals such as the ones being demanded by those illegals.

Why is it reapportionment always seems to bring out the ugliest and most unseemly aspects of our public officials? With acquiescence from the other county supervisors and the connivance of County Executive Richard Wittenberg and LAFCO Director Robert Braitman, Supervisor John Flynn has tried to geographically divide Latino interests to deny their potential electoral strength in this county. These same schemers again have divided the Ojai Valley communities of interest to stem any incipient political challenges that might coalesce from this politically fertile area.

A proposal by Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) to crack down on illegal immigrants and their employers drew a cold response Thursday from officials in Moorpark, where the day laborer issue has been the subject of recent controversy. Gallegly announced Thursday that a new U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service task force will conduct a series of sweeps in Agoura Hills and other communities in his district.

In response to Janice Gallegly's letter (Oct. 26), there has been an empty chair at our dinner table as well. My husband, Richard Freiman, has been campaigning full time for the office of U. S. representative since May. We both feel that the issues of freedom of choice, protection of our environment, and maintaining the integrity of Social Security, Medicare and other senior citizen programs are that important. Rep. Elton Gallegly has refused to meet my husband in a debate even though Richard first challenged him to a debate as far back as June.
