The Democrat candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a federal crime and also hasn't the time to return to the small business she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as uneasy as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the awareness that Ferry had taken 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 issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, although not to the victim, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no intention to correct her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly lamented how difficult it was to be blasted with her own crimes.
This shows a total lack of accountability for her behavior let alone the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony theft while our current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of such corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her stolen gains to her former boss.
3. Ferry may not be bondable to be the clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only showing this might 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.
According to court documents, the charge alleged in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her place of employment 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 browse around here she did this without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
An arrest warrant was click over here 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 settling in Joliet, her hometown.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but that it appears Staley-Ferry was not incarcerated. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, Jacinto said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be restitution and probation.
Lauren 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 called Independent Capital Group to notify them of the change in the status important link in the case.

Staley-Ferris stated the criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there was “nothing there” regarding the charge.
