Weld, Dukakis to press Baker on North, South Station link

Former governors Michael Dukakis and William Weld sat in Governor Charlie Baker’s fourth-floor conference room at the State House on Wednesday, ringed by televisions and white boards, and made their pitch: it is time, they argued, to build a long-sought tunnel that would connect North Station and South Station.

The meeting, which ran nearly an hour and included a Google Earth map of the proposal, said something about the access afforded former chief executives on Beacon Hill. But the aftermath said something about the limits of their influence.
