Your Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and has not even taken the time to return to the company she embezzled 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 insight that Ferry had taken a check from a former employer and made it out to herself. 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 correct her wrong, rather she apologized and openly complained how hard it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This only goes to show a total lack of accountability for her own actions not to mention just how she may run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Ferry has committed felony forgery and the current Clerk's office continues to be without such corruption.
2. Ferry has not repaid her debt to her former boss.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to support Ferry only demonstrating this might lead to more issues 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 the courtroom for the summons.
