Mayor Joe Riley. The name is synonymous with Charleston these days and for good reason. The man, the myth, the legend has been at the helm of this historic city since 1975.

Joe Riley swept to victory Tuesday, winning his tenth – and, he says, final – term as mayor of Charleston.

In honor of the victory, Live 5 News put together a video that takes a look back at the 36, going on 40 year reign that Mayor Joe Riley has had over the Holy City. You'll find it posted above.
