Lake County Board Candidate Arrested!
Here is John Roszkowski's Libertyville Review story
It seems local Green Party Lake County Board candidate Dave Serdar had a run-in with an ex-girlfriend at a local funeral home, near his house on Route 176. He had a pretty slim change of beating long-time and well liked incumbent Carol Calabresa before his arrest.... this won't make things easier for him.
