It is great to see Mr. Ray Mueller utilizing his role in the community to encourage youth participation, and create an opportunity to have access to community leaders that they did not have in the past.

Thank you, Ray, for showing them how they too have the ability to potentially make a difference. Well done.

This is a fantastic program, and it's so good to see the city's leadership doing exactly what is tasked of him: leading. The youth of our city are its future, and I'm happy to see that the leader, Mayor Mueller is walking the walk. Thank you, Ray for setting an example and being a role model to these kids. Keep up the positive, good work!
