Richard J. Daley was elected for his fifth consecutive term in 1975 and held the office of Mayor of Chicago for over 20 years. The shamrock on the button reflects Daley’s Irish heritage as well as the majority ethnic group of his neighborhood of Bridgeport.  Daley’s eldest son would go on to be elected Mayor of Chicago as well from 1989 to 2011 forging another Daley dynasty.
