The Democratic candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a federal crime and also hasn't the time to actually pay back the company she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe you are as worried as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the insight that Ferry had taken a check from her place of employment and made it out to herself. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was brought to light, Ferry said she was sorry, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to fix her wrong, rather she apologized and openly lamented how difficult it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This only goes to show a total lack of responsibility for her own actions let alone the way she might run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony forgery and the current Clerk's office continues to be clean of such corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her stolen gains to her former boss.
3. Lauren may not even be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to support Ferry only showing this could bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was charged with felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear in court for the case.
Lauren Staley-Ferry, D-Joliet, was charged with the felony forgery in Maricopa County, Arizona. Staley-Ferry had lived and worked in Maricopa County but moved from there to Wisconsin before the charge was filed.

A warrant was issued for Staley-Ferry’s arrest in April 2003, according to Amanda Jacinto, the spokesperson for the Maricopa Co. Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left Arizona and was back in the Midwest, eventually settling in her hometown, Joliet.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was never arrested. visit this web-site Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.

She said she did not know about the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she did not recall exactly when she departed.
The criminal charges were dismissed in 2012, as specified in the court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reached out to Independent Capital Group to let them know the status changes in the case.
