Leaders with Ginni Thomas: Ed Meese, Heritage Foundation

A humble, principled and wise man of integrity, Meese has dedicated his entire professional life to public service. He worked in Ronald Reagan’s gubernatorial administration in California and later served in senior positions in Reagan’s White House. In 1985, he was confirmed as Attorney General of the United States.
