The Democrat candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry committed a felony and has not taken the time to return to the small business she had stolen from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure 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 stolen a check from a former employer and forged his signature. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was brought to light, Ferry said she was sorry, but not to the victim, and there was no effort to repay this debt, no attempt to remedy her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly lamented how difficult it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This only goes to show a lack of responsibility for her own behavior let alone just how she might run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 things to think about before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony theft and our current Clerk's office has been without such corruption.
2. Ferry has not pay back her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren might not be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only demonstrating this might bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared in court for the summons.
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.

Also, Jacinto said, sentencing on a forgery learn the facts here now conviction might probably be restitution and probation.
Lauren said she did not know about the charges until she was already out of Arizona, although she said she could not remember the exact time she left.
The charges were dropped in 2012, according to court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to notify them of the change in the status in the case.

“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
Lauren stated the particular criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” regarding the charge.
