The Democratic candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and also has not taken the time to pay back the small business she had stolen from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe you are as uneasy as we are and ask you to vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge 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 crimes was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, but not to the victim, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no intention to remedy her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly talked about how hard it was to be blasted with her own blunders.
This only goes to show a lack of accountability for her behavior aside from just how she may run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery while the current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be the clerk because of her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to stand behind Ferry only showing this might lead to more issues for Will County
