Is your rep on this list?

As you have heard by now, we are on a mission to have “Roadrunner” declared to official rock song of the Commonwealth. Rep. Marty Walsh (D – Dorchester, where most good ideas start) has filed HD3506, “An Act designating the song ‘Roadrunner’ as the official rock song of the Commonwealth.” Other reps have until tomorrow, Feb. 20, to sign on as co-sponsors. So far, the following reps have done so-
