Gov. Baker, Boston Mayor Walsh heading to Washington

BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh are heading to Washington this week to meet with members of the Trump administration to discuss investments in infrastructure and transportation.

Baker said Monday that he and Walsh are hoping to send a bipartisan message by putting a Democrat and a Republican — a mayor and governor — in front of members of the executive and legislative branches to talk about why such investments are important.

Baker is Republican and Walsh is a Democrat.

Baker said members of both parties and the administration should be able to agree on the importance of maintaining and improving the nation’s infrastructure.

The two also plan to meet with members of the state’s all-Democratic Congressional delegation.

Baker and Walsh plan to head to Washington on Wednesday.
