Sources are telling the Insider that 7th District State Representative and Proviso Township Democratic Committeeman Karen Yarbrough is not tired of taking ass whoopins yet. Sources say Yarbrough is a key supporter of Jesse Martinez, the former Stone Park Trustee and current Proviso Township Trustee, who plans on running for mayor of Melrose Park against the popular incumbent. Yarbrough has reportedly teamed up with Cook County Commissioner Tony Peraica, former SD209 Board member Mike Manzo, and Martinez to run a slate of candidates in April 2009. Serpico is already well funded, but plans to collect more funds for the campaign at a big fundraiser on March 11, 2008 at the Carlisle.
What do you think of this race? What would another defeat mean for Karen Yarbrough?
