This is a campaign button for Richard M. Daley. Daley, the son of previous Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, was running to be Mayor of Chicago as well, and was first elected to the position in 1989 and held the position 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.
