Elmhurst 6th Ward Alderman Steve Morley is the second sitting alderman to throw his hat in the ring as a candidate for mayor in the April 9 Consolidated Election.
Morley, president of an Elmhurst-based marketing company, was born and raised in Elmhurst and is a graduate of York High School. He lives with his wife, Nancy, and their three children.
He has served the 6th Ward since 2007 and has been chairman of the city's Development, Planning and Zoning Committee since 2009.
In his bid for re-election to City Council in 2011, Morley stated his priorities were fiscal responsibility and solving long-term flooding issues, among other things.
Morley will formally announce his candidacy at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at Wilder Mansion.
Lifelong Elmhurst resident and 7th Ward Alderman Mark Mulliner announced his candidacy for mayor in August.
