The Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a felony and also has not even taken the time to return to the company she embezzled from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe you are as worried as we are and ask you to 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 crimes was finally revealed, Ferry said she was sorry, but not to the injured person, and there was no effort to repay this debt, no intention to fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This shows a lack of responsibility for her actions let alone just how she may run the county clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has committed felony forgery and our current County Clerk's office continues to be without corruption.
2. Lauren did not pay back her stolen gains 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 might lead to more issues for Will County
