State Rep/Congress buttons

Among the interesting buttons on this panel is the button for Bill O'Neill, about third row down center (with photo). This button is undated but may be from one of his first two unsuccessful runs for the State House of Representatives in 1960 and 1962, he ran again in 1966 and won, serving in the House from 1967-1978. O'Neill is much better known for his later political career, as the Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut from 1979-1980 and then 84th Governor from 1980-1991.
