Q&A with Bill Mueller, CEO of Valley Vision

They say it takes a village, but when local political and business leaders need help, it takes Valley Vision. This Sacramento-based nonprofit was founded in 1994 to assist public and private organizations in solving complex regional issues. And this November, it will host an event called Region Rising with the Sacramento Area Council of Governments. Valley Vision CEO Bill Mueller talks about civic cooperation, creating a “fun” public policy conference, and how this area can become the “best place to live on the planet.”
