Your Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a federal crime and hasn't the time to pay back the organization she stole money from.
If you as a voter and/or concerned citizen are as worried as we are please vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer and made it out to herself. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these crimes was finally revealed, Ferry said she was sorry, but not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no intention to correct her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be blasted with her own blunders.
This only goes to show a total lack of accountability for her own behavior aside from just how she might run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony forgery and the current County Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry may not be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to support Ferry only showing this might bring more problems for Will County

A Will County Board member running for the 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.
From the court documents, the charge alleged in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check try this from her employer at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, filled it out to herself for unknown amounts and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The document said she did this without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
A warrant was issued for Staley-Ferry’s arrest in April 2003, according to Amanda Jacinto, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. By that time, Staley-Ferry said she had already left the state and was back in the Midwest, eventually going back to Joliet, her hometown.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was not incarcerated. Instead, check over here Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.
Lauren said she was unaware of the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she did not recall exactly when she left.
The criminal charges were dropped in 2012, according to court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reached out to Independent Capital Group to notify them of the status changes in the case.
The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot recall some of the details, she denies the charge.
“I am conscious of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
Staley-Ferris said the criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there was “nothing there” regarding the charge.
