Pledging to fight big government, Robert K. Hammer, a banking consultant from Newbury Park, announced Monday that he plans to run in the 1994 Republican primary for the 24th Congressional District seat held by Rep. Anthony Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills). But Hammer, a Vietnam veteran, will have to triumph in what may be a lively Republican primary in June. Several other Republicans are exploring the Beilenson seat, including Richard Sybert, 41, a former senior aide to Gov. Pete Wilson.

Robert K. Hammer stood on the sun-baked lawn of the Newbury Park home that his family has outgrown and pointed to a new and brighter subdivision being carved into a distant hillside. It might as well have been Shangri-La. "That's what my wife gave up so I could run for office," the 44-year-old Hammer ruefully told a visitor two months after he lost his bid to be the Republican Party nominee in California's 24th Congressional District.

What a remarkable country we live in! Freedom was hard won by a few those many years ago and now is enjoyed by us all--fidelity, devotion and love of country. On this Independence Day weekend, it is so very easy to be humbled by the many contributions of genuine American patriots, those who gave the last full measure of devotion to their country. From Valley Forge, Trenton and Yorktown to those memorable beachheads on the coast of Normandy, France--Utah, Juno, Sword, Omaha and Gold--all served admirably in the cause of peace.

As the only formally announced candidate for the 24th congressional district to date, I read with interest your article about a possible opponent in the Republican primary ("Wilson Names Ex-Aide to Park Agency," Dec. 8). The article seemed to assert that this political appointment might give the gentleman a leg up on the other GOP hopefuls. How's that, again? From where the people of the 24th sit, another political appointee is not what voters tell us they want. The more political ties, the more strings, the more of an insider any opponent of ours is, the greater voter mistrust.
