Ray Mueller is a California native,
and has been a resident of the Bay Area for close to 20 years.
In 2006, Ray and his young family moved to
Menlo Park, "because of the schools, parks,
trees, and small town charm." In 2010, Ray was appointed to
the Menlo Park Transportation Commission. During his tenure, the Commission has tackled complex and diverse issues, including Facebook's expansion into Menlo Park, the El Camino Real Downtown Specific Plan, the Willows Traffic Study, and Stanford Hospital Expansion. It was during this time period that Ray established himself as a problem solver, unafraid to travel out into the community to dissect an issue and build consensus around a course of action.
Ray was elected Chair of the Menlo Park Transportation Commission in 2012.
Professionally, Ray is a practicing attorney, and also tinkers as product strategist and
inventor for a human factors/product design firm here in the Silicon Valley.
While in law school, Ray was one of the founders of the Hastings Society for Legislative Scholarship, which later became the Hastings Government Law Society. Ray also performed internships at the Public Law Research Institute in San Francisco, and at the Legislative Counsel's Office in Sacramento.
