Richard Roy Eardley (December 23, 1928[1] – June 30, 2012)[2] served three terms as mayor of Boise, Idaho, from 1974 to 1986.

Eardley served as mayor for a total of 12 years, longer than anyone else in Boise history, although David H. Bieter will match him should he complete his term ending in 2016. In city history only Eardley and Bieter have won three consecutive four-year terms as mayor.

Eardley began his career in television and radio broadcasting, and served four years on Boise City Council before being elected Mayor.
