And another thing . . .

The Yarbroughs aren’t going quietly into the night in Maywood.

This online article relays how the outgoing mayor of the western suburb, Henderson Yarbrough, just appointed an ally to the village board as Yarbrough exits public office. This leaves the new mayor, Edwenna Perkins, with a more hostile board as she tries to fix the mess that Yarbrough (and his politician-wife, Cook County Recorder of Deeds Karen Yarbrough) created or otherwise exacerbated.

We also wanted to attach a letter we came by in which the outgoing mayor trashes state Rep. Chris Welch (D-Hillside) – who replaced Karen Yarbrough in the General Assembly when she decided to run for her county post.

Interesting how politically toned the letter is – and yet it’s on official government letterhead.
