Visionary of the Year

Esme Award
MuniWireless
"The first award went to Jim Baller of Baller Herbst Law Group. It’s hard to find anyone as deserving of this award as Jim. He has worked tirelessly to protect the interests of municipalities, many times in the face of huge opposition. At times, he’s been the lone voice fighting against challenges to municipalities’ right to determine their own broadband future. And it’s through his efforts that public broadband can actually advance in many communities around the country."
