William Singer was first elected as the alderman of Chicago's 44th ward in 1969, with a victory of only 429 votes. He later led an insurgency with Reverend Jesse Jackson against Richard J. Daley at the Democratic National Convention in 1972, succeeding in replacing Daley's delegates. He later ran for mayor against Daley, but was defeated in a landslide. He ended his career in politics and entered into a private law firm in the 1980s.
