Description : Abstract
David Boeri reports that African American community leaders and city officials have proposed to build the new headquarters of the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) in Roxbury. Boeri notes that the MWRA headquarters would be the cornerstone in a project to develop Parcel 18, located near the Ruggles MBTA station. Boeri's report includes footage of a press conference with city officials and African American leaders. Charles Stith (Union United Methodist Church), Bruce Bolling (Boston City Council), Ray Flynn (Mayor of Boston), Harold Hestnes (member of "The Vault"), and James Kelly (Boston City Council) all speak out in favor of Parcel 18. Boeri reports that the Massachusetts State Legislature is also considering the city of Quincy for the MWRA site. Boeri notes that African American leaders are asking state legislators to show their support for the African American community by choosing Parcel 18. Boeri's report includes footage of Paul Harold (State Senator) speaking to the media. Harold says that Quincy is the right place for the MWRA headquarters. Boeri's report also includes footage of Paul Levy (MWRA) at a press conference. Levy says that the MWRA site does not have to be in Quincy. Boeri reports that city officials and African American leaders are pressuring state legislators to support Parcel 18.
