I remember reading somewhere that putting lights in the alleys and ensuring weekly garbage pickups as scheduled were two of the main campaign promises made by Richard J. Daley that got him elected Mayor of Chicago, but I don't know which election. I also don't recall where I read this. It was in 1966 lights were installed in Chicago's Alleys.
