As James K. Hahn moves into his new office at City Hall, he has Ronald N. Tutor, in part, to thank for it. Tutor, president of construction giant Tutor-Saliba Corp., spent $75,000 to help Hahn win the mayor's race. That money went for mailers that backed Hahn as an experienced crime-fighter and branded his rival, Antonio Villaraigosa, as "armed and dangerous." The contractor also hosted two fund-raisers for Hahn during the long mayoral campaign.

She was a temp. The gal at the agency said the job was just right for her. Ten minutes from her home in Long Beach. Nine-plus bucks an hour. The possibility of a permanent job after three months, with benefits. She had a child. Her husband, an electrician, was uninsured. They put her in a ninth-floor suite with the building manager. She was 26, he was 42. Two married people, working alone together. This was October 1996.

The agency in charge of building a $2.4-billion rail expressway to serve the county's ports will approve a contract today turning over the project's most critical phase to one of the same construction companies associated with the troubled Los Angeles subway system. But officials of the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority say they have implemented checks and balances to prevent the sort of crushing cost overruns and delays that have dogged the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Mayoral challenger Tom Hayden accused Mayor Richard Riordan on Thursday of being incapable of fulfilling his role as an "independent watchdog" of worker safety on the Metro Rail subway project because he received $20,000 in contributions from prime contractor Tutor-Saliba nearly four years ago. The accusation by Hayden at an MTA committee meeting being chaired by Riordan came only days after the death Saturday of a Tutor-Saliba worker in Hollywood.

At the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, where billions of dollars in contracts are parceled out, the influence of political contributions is an ever-present undercurrent. Lobbyists--more of them are registered at the MTA than at the state Capitol--blanket the agency's meetings. And, records show, companies that do business with the MTA have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a handful of elected officials who oversee the nation's most expensive subway project.
