Gery Chico tried Friday to distance himself from Ald. Edward Burke (14th) and explain how he intends to sever ties with the law firm that bears his name if he’s elected mayor to avoid potential conflicts.

He also rolled out an innovative idea to honor his promise not to put “another brick on the back” of Chicago taxpayers: a special taxing and entertainment district on the west side of O’Hare Airport.
