The Democrat candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a felony and also hasn't taken the time to pay back the small business she embezzled from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe 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 forged his signature. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was finally revealed, Ferry said she was sorry, but not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no intention to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly lamented how difficult it was to be blasted with her own blunders.
This only goes to show a total lack of responsibility for her behavior not to mention just how she may run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony theft while the current County Clerk's office continues to be without corruption.
2. Lauren did not pay back her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren may not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only showing this might lead to more issues for Will County
