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.”
