    (Published Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019)

    In what has become the longest government shutdown in American history, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker are planning on taking a road trip.

    "Instead of building walls, let's show them how to build bridges," said Walsh in his State of the City address.

    Tuesday night, Walsh announced the two would be traveling together to Washington to show how their bipartisan approach to governing works.

    Walsh is a Democrat leading the city and Baker is a Republican leading the state.

    "I think we would both like to have a chance to sort of make a collaborative pitch to the folks down there to think a little bigger about to treat each other and try to get things done," said Baker.

    Walsh calls President Donald Trump's determination on building a wall along the southern border "frustrating."

    "There's no if, and, or buts about it, and there's no dialogue," said Walsh.

    It's not clear when or how the two will get to Washington. They still have to work out the logistics through their administrations' staffers.

    Baker wants the timing to align with other local and state leaders across the country.

    "I have a feeling that if we schedule this the right way, we may be able do it when there are other folks from either state government or other cities down there," said Baker.
