The Democrat nominee Lauren Staley-Ferry committed a federal crime and has not even taken the time to actually return to the company she had stolen 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 awareness that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer and forged his signature. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these crimes was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, although not to the victim, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no attempt to remedy her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly lamented how hard it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This only goes to show a lack of accountability for her behavior not to mention just how she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has committed felony forgery while our current County Clerk's office has been clean of corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to back up Ferry only showing this could lead to more issues for Will County
