As posted in Crain's Chicago Business

This week Chicago Comes Back welcomes Elliot Richardson, co-founder and president of the Small Business Advocacy Council, an organization dedicated to advocating for small businesses in Illinois. We wanted to get a sense of how smaller firms are faring at this phase of the pandemic, as well as forecast how they're preparing for the future.

Todd Connor: Elliot, thanks for spending time with us. The pandemic upended the environment for lots of small businesses—something some Chicagoans have experienced in very personal ways. What was the experience of your members last year?
