Danny K. Davis knows a thing or two about government.
The long-time congressman Monday said he'd run the city differently from the way Richard Daley has.
"I have always been a man of the people,” Davis said at an afternoon press conference. "As mayor I will empower the city council to play a full role ... my administration would be one of close collaboration with the council. ... I will make absolutely certain that transparency is the order of the day.
How he would do it isn't exactly clear. Davis offered few specifics on his plan.
"I've always run my offices in this way," Davis said. "It is the signature of my style of government."
