FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Justin Pickering, CEO
Local Business Owner Justin Pickering Named to NSBA Leadership Council
WOBURN, Massachusetts – Justin Pickering, CEO of Blaine & González in Woburn, Massachusetts was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization, and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Pickering, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“As a small-business owner, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Pickering. “Joining NSBA’s Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most: Congress.”
Mr. Pickering received his Master's Degree in Spanish Literature and Linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin. He has ten years of experience teaching Spanish at the high school, middle school, and university level. Additionally, he held various officer roles in several start-up companies in the sectors of television, renewable energy, management consulting, and education. Mr. Pickering has managed Blaine & González for six years.
Pickering joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of his efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small business, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small business. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.
“I am proud to have Justin Pickering as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. He came to us highly recommended and I look forward our coordinated efforts for years to come.”

Dear Friends of Blaine & González,
Today, the Trump Administration has declared an end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This is a sad day in the history of our nation.
America is a nation founded on the hard work, dedication, and strength of immigrants from all over the world.
True Americans welcome and embrace cultural diversity and all its wonders: the glorious food, inspiring music, deeply-felt poetry, illuminating literature, fun and exciting dance, cool clothing styles, and all the other trappings of a multi-ethnic, multi-racial, multi-cultural society.
I am writing today not as CEO if Blaine & González, but as a father of a 4-month old baby girl whose mother is a Hispanic immigrant. I think of all those families that brought their children to this country seeking a better life, children that became an integral part of our society. Children who in many cases have not known any other country but the United States, that all they want is to study, work, and contribute to the society that has seen them grow up.
I am filled with a mix of sadness and rage seeing how our president wants to ruin the path of hundreds of thousands young lives. This, friends, is wrong. Plain and simple.
Blaine & González stands in solidarity with our contractors of all races from all over the world; with our Hispanic friends and family; and with all those Americans of reason, compassion, and love who would see a world without discrimination, and a world that does not judge people from where they are from, but on the content of their character and what is in their hearts.
Sincerely and in Solidarity,
Blaine & González
