Your Democratic candidate Lauren Staley Ferry committed a criminal offense and also hasn't taken the time to actually return to the organization she had stolen from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as worried as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the insight that Ferry had stolen a check from a former employer and made it out to herself. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was brought to light, Ferry said she was sorry, although not to the victim, and there was no attempt to pay off this debt, no attempt to fix her wrong, rather she apologized and openly complained how hard it was to be blasted with her own crimes.
This shows a total lack of responsibility for her own behavior much less the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony theft while our current County Clerk's office has been clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry has not repaid her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Lauren might not even be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to support Ferry only showing this could bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was charged with 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 discover this charge was filed.
From the court documents, the charge alleged that, in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her place of employment at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, made it out to herself for an unknown amount and then deposited it into her personal checking account. The document said she did so without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
An arrest warrant was issued for Staley-Ferry’s arrest in April 2003, according to Amanda Jacinto, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. By that time, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already fled Arizona and had returned to the Midwest, eventually settling in Joliet, her hometown.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but that it appears Staley-Ferry was go to my site not arrested. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be probation and restitution.
Lauren said she was unaware of the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she could not recall the exact time she departed.
The charges were dropped in 2012, according to court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to let them know the status changes in the case.
When The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she did not remember some of the details, she go to my blog denies the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
Staley-Ferris said the criminal charges was “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” regarding the charges.
