Chicago mayoral candidate Bill Daley wants the state to rename the Dan Ryan Expressway for former President Barack Obama, Daley’s onetime boss at the White House.

Daley worked as Obama’s chief of staff for a year starting in January 2011, leaving a year later as part of a shake-up meant to improve the White House’s operations and its dealings with legislative leaders.

“Our Chicago expressways are named for towering figures in our history: Kennedy, Eisenhower, Stevenson,” Daley said in the statement. “We should have one for Obama, who is the only President from Chicago and led the nation through the second-worst economic crisis in our history.”

Daley called on state lawmakers to make the change next year.
