State of the City – June 4, 2020

COVID-19 and a power outage early this morning could not keep Mayor Ken McClure from giving his 2020 State of the City address.

The yearly address, which comprised this year’s virtual June Good Morning Springfield! program hosted by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, was livestreamed from Evangel University’s Crusader Dining Hall and got started about 10 minutes late due to a widespread power outage across Springfield. While the event normally draws several hundred attendees, this year it was held virtually due to COVID-19.
