| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mayor Daley, winding up a 22-year City Hall stint on Monday, when Rahm Emanuel gets sworn-in, was saluted Thursday from the Senate floor by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)

Said Durbin, "Richard Daley's vision has been clear--to make Chicago one of the best cities in the world and he pursued that goal with fierce determination," said Durbin. "His leadership transformed Chicago from a Rustbelt manufacturing center to a cultural center that is called the sixth-most global city in the world, alongside New York, London and Hong Kong. He has worked relentlessly to make Chicago the most livable big-city in America and the most environmentally friendly city in the world. Thank you, Mayor Daley."
