Everistus Obiakor, MSBA Class of 2014, was invited to attend a town hall meeting of small business owners with Senator Ben Cardin, (D-MD) at Ernest Maier Inc. in Bladensburg, MD.

Ernest Maier CEO Brendan Quinn invited Everistus and Program Director Stewart McHie to join the plant tour and sit in on a frank discussion with Senator Cardin about the financial plight of the small business owner.  Health care requirements, taxes and bureaucratic red tape were all discussed as interfering with the growth and success of small

businesses. The Senator defended the Obama Health Care Plan and promised to look into the lack of information reaching the business owners.  He acknowledged that small businesses are the job creators of the future.

Everistus will intern with Mr. Quinn and be involved with both his domestic business and business interests in Angola.  Assistant Dean Phil Brach who introduced Mr. Quinn to the MSBA program also attended the event.
