Staley-Ferry Is Running For Will County ClerkThe Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry committed a federal crime and also has not the time to return to the small business 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 insight 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 apologized, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and openly complained how difficult it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This only goes to show a total lack of accountability for her own actions aside from just how she might run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Lauren has committed felony theft while our current County Clerk's office continues to be clean of corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her debt to her former boss.
3. Lauren may not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only showing this could bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was click for source brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but never appeared 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.

The criminal charges were dropped in 2012, as specified in the court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to let them know the change in the status of the case.
When The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot recall the exact details, she denies the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
