The people deserve to know the specific voting record of Congressman Elton Gallegly, and they deserve to hear a real debate between the incumbent congressman and his opponent, Richard Freiman. Incumbents have huge advantages--name recognition, money and access to the press. The people are the losers; they never hear anything negative about them. Gallegly's political letters, mailed to his constituents at taxpayers' expense, are carefully written to his advantage, never addressing anything controversial.

Richard Freiman, an unsuccessful Democratic congressional candidate in 1990, said Friday that he may mount another campaign aimed at ousting Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) during next year's election. Freiman, an attorney and screenwriter, is a longtime resident of Oak Park, a community near Thousand Oaks that is no longer located in the congressional district represented by Gallegly.

This is another call for a debate between Richard Freiman and incumbent Congressman Elton Gallegly. I want to know how our potential representatives plan on dealing with the mounting problems facing our country. It hurts to read in the newspaper that American kids are considered poorly educated among the industrialized nations. I am ashamed to read that the U. S. has accumulated an enormous budget deficit under "fiscal conservative" leadership over the last decade. What ever happened to fiscal responsibility and the conservatism that was suppose to build a strong, vibrant and educated America?

As a relative of a defense worker who lives and works in the 21st Congressional District, I was dismayed to see that my congressman, Elton Gallegly, voted against the bill that provided money to assist laid-off defense workers with job retraining, job search assistance, extended unemployment and other benefits. There are many defense workers in this district who devoted many years of their lives to protecting this country and bringing an end to the Cold War. If this is how he represents the needs of those people, then we need somebody else in that position.

It is time for the public to hear and compare the positions of the candidates for the 21st Congressional District seat. In order to go to the polls as educated voters, we need to hear the positions of both Richard Freiman and Elton Gallegly. The incumbent has repeatedly refused to debate or participate in a candidate forum with Richard Freiman, including those put on by the League of Women Voters. In a local newspaper recently, Gallegly was quoted saying he would not participate in a debate on KADY-TV, even when the station offered to do it by satellite from Washington, D.C., because it was too last-minute and he did not have time to prepare.

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.

After reading The Times profile of Richard Freiman, a candidate for the 21st Congressional District, I decided to write this letter. Congressman Elton Gallegly was a self-made and successful businessman before entering the political scene, where he started as a city councilman in Simi Valley, which is where my office is located. He was then able to gain experience and knowledge relating to state, county and local government and rise to the position of mayor. After serving six years as mayor, he was overwhelmingly elected to Congress where he has served for two terms.

Democratic congressional candidate Richard Freiman, seeking an attention-getting issue for his uphill campaign against Rep. Elton Gallegly, Wednesday called on Gallegly to give $20,000 in contributions from savings and loan institutions to the U.S. Treasury to help pay for a massive federal bailout of the troubled industry.

The people of this county have long needed and deserve honesty and integrity in its government. Congressional candidate Richard Freiman would give us back this hope for a better future and equality for that forgotten, hard-working mainstream American middle-class. Does anyone still remember them? Unlike his opponent, Elton Gallegly, Freiman believes in abortion rights and protecting the environment, instead of offshore oil drilling in California like Gallegly supports. He likewise would not have voted against expanding Medicaid for the elderly poor, as Gallegly did. SHIRLEY EVERETT Thousand Oaks
