THEME SONG "Bill Trabucco the Science Guy"
IN HIS WORDS "No nonsense. Buckle your seatbelt. If you check the box for Bill Trabucco, everything you've always wanted from a politician will get done in 40 days."
IN OUR WORDS We wouldn't be surprised if Emergency Medical Technician Bill Trabucco held Harvard President Drew Faust hostage until she agreed to pay her university's fair share of taxes (at least for its Allston property). He's the type of reactionary candidate that you typically get (and crave) more of in a city-council race; of particular hilarity to nerdy political observers has been Trabucco's touting a first-place victory in the Dearborn School "Science Competition" nearly 30 years ago.
