Bruce Rauner announced Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015, he wants to hold a public auction to sell Thompson Center, which houses state government offices in downtown Chicago, calling the building “ineffective” and a “very wasteful, very inefficient use of space.” He said selling the building and moving state workers elsewhere could save the state between $6 million and $12 million annually.

Ward Miller, executive director of Preservation Chicago, joins Anna to talk about the importance of preserving the Thompson Center and the tragic death of famed architect Helmut Jahn.
