Mayor Richard M. Daley is sworn in to his first full term by Judge Abraham Lincoln Marovitz in 1991 while son Parick (from left), daughter Nora, and wife, Maggie, look on at Navy Pier. Daley, who won easily, became the city's 45th mayor. In his inaugural speech Daley asserted, "My goal in the next four years is to mold a government that is smaller in size, but greater in performance. And those who manage our schools, our parks and our transit system must do the same, or these vital services will collapse under the weight of their financial problems."
