The Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and also hasn't taken the time to actually pay back the organization 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 stolen 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 issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no intention to correct her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how difficult it was to be blasted with her own mistakes.
This only goes to show a lack of responsibility for her own behavior aside from the way she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony theft and our current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Lauren did not repaid her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only showing this might bring more problems for Will County
