Correction: Top 100 List

Correction: On Aug. 10 in the Top 100 list, Capitol Weekly erroneously reported in item No. 16 that Robbie Hunter, the retired head of the State Building and Construction Trades Council, had performed consulting chores for the Western States Petroleum Association.  In fact, he has not. The error in the Top 100 list has been corrected and we posted this separate correction, as well.

He started out with $3,000 and a VW bug. Now, he’s a multimillionaire bankrolling a November ballot initiative to dramatically change the way the California borrows money for public works.
