Two-term Elmhurst Mayor Steve Morley will deliver his eighth and final “State of Our City” Mayoral Address from event co-sponsor Community Bank of Elmhurst’s second-floor Hammersmith Community Room on Thursday, Jan. 14, at 8 a.m. via the City’s YouTube page at

     The Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce and Industry has co-sponsored the Mayoral Address since 1998 and CBE has served as the host site since 2000.

     Typically videotaped before an audience of 150 businesspeople, the annual event will still be rebroadcast via videotape on cable television on Comcast Channel 6 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 on Sundays at 7 p.m. and Tuesday at 5 p.m. starting January 24.

     Mayor Morley will apprise the Elmhurst community on the many challenges and successes of 2020 in the face of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic and access the municipality’s economic outlook for 2021 and beyond his tenure.

     “This is traditionally among the Chamber’s best attended Membership Breakfasts,” said John R. Quigley, ECCI President and CEO, “and we will still provide valuable insight for viewers, but without the effect from a standing-room-only crowd.”

     A successful businessman himself who has worked with Fortune 500 companies, Mayor Morley is a Managing Member at Crown River Partners, a broker and advisor to small businesses, and the Principal at Every Door Direct Media, a consulting, marketing and print agency.  Both of his businesses are Chamber members.

     “After Steve leaves office, I will miss him half-jokingly clarifying at Chamber events whether he is wearing his Mayor’s tie or his businessman’s tie,” stated Quigley.
