GOP Apostate to Run Against Parke

Fred Crespo, a newly minted Hoffman Estates Trustee and protege of State Rep Paul Froelich(R-Schaumburg) is planning to challenge State Rep Terry Parke(R-Hoffman Estates) in the general election.
Parke shares a district with State Rep Ruth Munson and State Sen Steve Rauschenburger, both Republicans of Elgin. The 2000 map made it a considerably more moderate district, and held Munson to a narrow election margin in 2004. (She had been appointed to the seat of then State Rep Doug Hoeft, upon Hoeft's death.) “He (Madigan) sees this as a genuine opportunity to pick up three seats," said a morose Parke.
