This button is from one of Richard M. Daley's campaigns to be mayor of Chicago. Daley, the son of previous Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, was first elected to the position in 1989 and held the position until 2011. Daley's time as mayor was characterized by increased benefits to LGBT workers, encouraged tourism, and the institution of more eco-friendly measures around 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.
