Frank MacKay, Chairman of the Independence Party of New York talks about the Independence Party and its history and influence in New York State politics, as well as politics for the entire nation.
Frank has a very active career in public relations, entertainment and politics spanning four decades and encompassing a diversity of disciplines. Back in 1985, at the age of 18, he published his first music production called “Network”, which quickly became a hit among music business insiders, musicians and their fans. Over the next decade, Frank built a significant following in the music industry as a band and club promoter, and by the time he was 25, he had launched three nightclubs known as Dr. Shay’s and managed entertainers such as Criss Angel and CJ Ramone.
On the political front, back in 1992, Frank became active in Ross Perot’s third party presidential run. He was always a student of politics, and early in his career in entertainment he helped club-goers register to vote by the thousands. In 1995, he became a key organizer in the Independence Party of New York and active in third party politics. By the year 2000, at the age of 32, Frank became the youngest State Chairman of a political party in New York State history, and has since been elected as State Chair of the Independence Party of New York. The Independence Party has grown significantly under his leadership, and has now joined forces with the Alliance Party.
Currently, Frank hosts “Breaking it Down,” a leading celebrity radio and podcast talk show, which is nationally syndicated and has a faithful following of thousands of listeners.
