Mayoral candidates discuss what to do with City Hall
BOSTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- With the Boston mayoral race underway the candidates have begun discussing the plans for what they want to do with Boston’s aging City Hall.
State Rep Marty Walsh unveiled his plan Monday, which calls to knock down the building before selling the land to developers for profit.
Fellow candidate Mike Ross, who is a city councilor, called the plan flawed.
"The next mayor of our city cannot just roll out the same recycled proposals that we've been talking about for decades. That is why I have been talking about new ideas, ideas that concentrate on strengthening our neighborhoods,” said Mike Ross.
Ross believes Walsh's plan won't help Boston grow.
He said the Leon Electric Building at Upham's Corner would be a more effective re-development project.
