This is a button for Richard M. Daley's campaign to become State’s Attorney of Cook County in Illinois. Daley, the son of previous Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, was elected to the position in 1981 and held it until 1989. Daley’s tenure as State’s Attorney was most notable for his rulings on reports of police brutality. Richard M. Daley is best known as Mayor of Chicago, a post to which he was first elected in 1989 and held until 2011. Daley's tenure as mayor was characterized by increased benefits to LGBT workers, encouraged tourism, and instituted more eco-friendly measures around the city of Chicago. When Daley stepped down from the position in 2011, he had served as Mayor of Chicago for 22 years, making him the longest-serving mayor in Chicago's history.
