 WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Mick Blackistone, former executive director of the Marine Trades Association of Maryland and the Anne Arundel Marine Trades Association and head of his own public relations firm specializing in the boating industry, has been named director, state government relations, for the National Marine Manufacturers Association in Washington.
 According to David Broome, NMMA vice president of government relations: "After an extensive search, the NMMA is very enthusiastic with Mick Blackistone as our new director of state government relations. Blackistone has been active in the marine industry for over 15 years; has been extremely successful on issues relating to taxation, legislation and regulation impacting the boating industry and he worked closely with NMMA staff for over a decade on many important issues including the repeal of the luxury tax on vessels.
