He arrived in the Steel Yard around 15 years ago and decided to settle down, finding to to be a relatively saf place and enjoying its proximity to Adelaide.
Well educated, his mother was a teacher.
Morley has sold everything from snake oil to real estate, but what he really excels at is selling visions. He moved into politics and eventually became mayor.
