Public works construction magnate Ron Tutor has lived by a simple, merciless creed: "We ask no quarter. We give no quarter." Now that is coming back to haunt him. Tutor has made big marks on California's landscape while amassing hundreds of millions of dollars, a yacht he rents out for hundreds of thousands of dollars a week, and a Boeing 737 jetliner.

The city Board of Public Works unanimously awarded an $18-million sewer plant job Monday to construction giant Tutor-Saliba, despite concerns expressed by some public works staff members about the firm's business practices. The award was the second in a week to Tutor-Saliba by the administration of Mayor James K. Hahn. Tutor-Saliba and its president, Ronald N. Tutor, have been financial backers of Hahn's political campaigns.

Mayor James K. Hahn dismissed as nonsensical Wednesday any suggestion that campaign contributions from the firm Tutor-Saliba influenced its selection this week for a $33-million airport construction contract. "That just makes no sense at all," Hahn told radio station KNX. "They were the low bidder. I think that when public funds are being expended, we've got to go with the best person who gives us the best work for the price."
