WAYNE BUCCINI has always been a Democrat, but he hasn’t always been a reliable voter. In 2010, when Scott Brown and Martha Coakley competed in their high-profile special election for Edward Kennedy’s US Senate seat, Buccini sat it out. “I wasn’t even paying attention last time,” he says.
He’s paying attention now. After nearly two difficult years of unemployment, he is following this year’s Senate contest between Brown and Elizabeth Warren, listening for who has the most sound ideas on the economy, tax equity, and the role of government. He says he is leaning toward Warren but remains undecided.
