Will County Clerk Candidate is a LawbreakerYour Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry committed a federal crime 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 awareness that Ferry had taken 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 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 fix her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be confronted with her own mistakes.
This shows a lack of responsibility for her behavior aside from the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before you vote:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony theft while the current Clerk's office has been clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her debt to her former boss.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to back up Ferry only demonstrating this could bring more problems for Will County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was 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.
From the court documents, the charge alleged in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry removed a check from her employer at Independent Capital Group, then located in Scottsdale, Arizona, filled it out to herself for unknown amounts and then deposited it into her personal checking account.

Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but that it appears Staley-Ferry was never arrested. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, Jacinto said, sentencing on a forgery conviction might probably be restitution and probation.
Lauren said she did not know about the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she did not recall the exact time she departed.
The 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 notify them of the change in the status in the case.
When The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot recall the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
Lauren said the particular criminal Home Page charges was “misdirected” and therefore there was “nothing there” in regard to the charges.
