Karen Yarbrough, running for 7th District State Representative in March of 2000,  visits with residents during a campaign fundraiser at Scoreboard Sports Bar, 7505 Madison St. (now Slainte Irish Pub). Yarbrough would successfully defeat the appointed incumbent, Wanda Sharp, that year. Her political career grew in years to come, later serving as the Cook County Recorder of Deeds (preceded by Eugene Moore), as the Cook County Clerk (preceded David Orr), and serving as chair of the Illinois Democratic Party (preceded by Michael Madigan).
