Cleveland—The Hon. Justin M. Bibb, the 58th Mayor of Cleveland, announced today the annual State of the City Address will be held on April 13th, at an event convened by The City Club of Cleveland. Starting at 7 pm, in Silver Hall, at the Maltz Performing Arts Center on the campus of Case Western Reserve University, this free event will provide an opportunity for Mayor Bibb to speak to the accomplishments of his first 100 days in office, the progress of the economic recovery underway, and his vision for the city.

“I’m looking forward to celebrating my first 100 days in office with the residents of Cleveland as we reflect on this moment of transition and transformation in our city. Civic participation and dialogue is what makes democracy work and I can’t wait to engage with residents from every ward on this special evening. Thank you to The City Club of Cleveland for presenting the State of the City address on the grounds of my alma mater,” Mayor Bibb said.

In addition to his remarks, the Mayor will also answer questions from Cleveland residents. All who are interested are invited to submit questions ahead of time through the City Club at:

“Direct questions from constituents have been a hallmark of City Club forums since our inception,” said City Club CEO Dan Moulthrop. “We’re grateful to the Mayor and our partners for the opportunity to highlight neighborhood voices as part of the State of the City. We’re looking forward to a wonderful evening.”

“We are delighted to partner with the City Club for this historic event,” said Case Western Reserve University President Eric W. Kaler. “It’s especially meaningful to host Mayor Bibb, an alumnus of both our School of Law and our Weatherhead School of Management.”

The evening event will be open to all members of the community, thanks to support from PNC Bank, Case Western Reserve University, and other sponsors. The event will also be livestreamed at and other websites, and will be broadcast on delay on WKSU Ideastream Public Media.
