Renaming Seaport conference heart after Thomas Menino a ‘terrific idea,’ Jim Rooney says


A push on Beacon Hill to rename the large conference heart within the Seaport after former Mayor Thomas Menino drew reward from one other man who had a front-row seat to the redevelopment of the neighborhood.

Larger Boston Chamber of Commerce CEO Jim Rooney served for greater than 14 years on the Massachusetts Conference Middle Authority, together with as director of growth and development within the early 2000s when the Boston Conference and Exhibition Middle was being constructed and later because the group’s government director when the constructing opened.

Rooney stated a proposal from Democratic leaders within the Home to rename the constructing the Thomas Michael Menino Conference and Exhibition Middle is a “terrific idea.”

“Oftentimes you see naming proposals for public buildings, roadways, highways, and the person really had nothing to do with it. In this case, Mayor Menino was the driving force behind the convention center and what has become the Seaport,” Rooney instructed the Herald as he left an unrelated occasion on the State Home Wednesday.
