Sheriff Richard mack

Author/speaker and former sheriff Richard Mack has served in a wide variety of roles over the course of his nearly twenty year career in law enforcement, which began in Provo, Utah.

Mack began his career with the Provo Police Department as a parking enforcement cadet while attending BYU. A couple of years later he became a full-time officer and was soon promoted to Corporal, Sergeant, and Detective. His most traumatic experience there was a one-year assignment as an undercover narcotics agent. After nearly 11 years at Provo PD, Mack decided to return to his childhood turf in Arizona and run for Graham County Sheriff. His campaign took off and he was elected in 1988.

He was sheriff for two terms until 1997. He was named Elected Official of the Year by the Arizona-New Mexico Coalition of Counties in 1994, received the NRA Law Officer of the Year, inducted into the NRA Hall of Fame, 1995 Cicero Award, Samuel Adams Leadership Award from the Local Sovereignty Coalition, and Gun Owners of America Defender of the Second Amendment Award.

During his tenure, federal officers informed the sheriffs of the state that they would be required to enforce the so-called “Brady Bill” and run background checks at their expense under the law. In 1994, Mack and six other sheriffs from across the country, challenged the constitutionality of the Brady Bill and ultimately, fought it all the way to the United States Supreme Court, where they won a monumental decision for freedom. Three years later, in a landmark 5-4 split decision based on the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, Mack won his case.

A graduate of the FBI National Academy, some of Mack’s positions include: patrol officer, undercover narcotics officer, hostage negotiator, youth officer, school resource officer, communications supervisor, corporal, front desk sergeant, detective, sheriff, Search and Rescue supervisor, jail administrator, and DARE instructor.

Mack has been a consultant on numerous cases regarding police abuse, brutality, and other misconduct by public officials. He has joined with other members of the law enforcement community to speak out in favor of drug policy reform.

A graduate of Brigham Young University, Mack now lives with his wife near the Phoenix, AZ area.

During the past two years Sheriff Mack has been a speaker at more than 70 different Tea Party rallies all across the country, ranging all the way from Honolulu to Bangor, Maine. Mack has supported this noble movement, because it is both effective and peaceful.

Charlie O'Neill

Charlie O’Neill is the Grassroots Programs Coordinator for the Leadership Institute. He has spent over a decade working in politics, public policy, and communications. Prior to working at the Leadership Institute, he worked as Deputy Executive Director at the Republican Party of Pennsylvania. He also has served as a Legislative Liaison in Governor Tom Corbett’s Administration in two agencies, served as a staffer in PA State Senate, and managed campaigns from School Board to Congress across Pennsylvania.

Had it not been for a shared love of baseball, Charlie’s career may have taken a different trajectory. In 2009, he landed an interview to be a Congressional Intern while attending Catholic University in Washington DC, in the office of the late Congressman Howard Coble. He made a lifelong friend discussing baseball, and a hatred of the Washington Nationals, with the Congressman’s Orioles fan chief of staff. As a Phillies fan, born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia, his accent did not fit in, but his work ethic did. After several years in the office, through networking on the Hill, he started working for the Republican Governor’s Association until 2012 when he returned home to Pennsylvania.  

When not volunteering for the local county committee, where he has held Committeeman, and Vice-Chair positions, Charlie and his wife Kelly enjoy hiking, relaxing in the back yard, and spending time with family at the Jersey Shore along with their son and miniature Australian Shepherd, Ted.
