The Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and also hasn't taken the time to actually return to the organization she had stolen from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe you are as concerned as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge that Ferry had stolen 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 crimes was finally revealed, Ferry said she was sorry, but not to the victim, and there was no effort 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 may run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 thoughts to consider before you vote:
1. Lauren has committed felony forgery and the current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Lauren did not pay back her debt to the victim.
3. Lauren may not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to support Ferry only demonstrating this could lead to more issues for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was charged with felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear in the courtroom for the summons.
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.
According to court documents, the charge alleged that, in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry stole a check from her place of employment 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. The documents reported she did this 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 check it out the Maricopa Co. Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left Arizona learn this here now and was back in the Midwest, eventually settling in her hometown, Joliet.
.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.
Staley-Ferry said she was unaware of the charges until she was already out of 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 reached out to official source Independent Capital Group to notify them of the change in the status in the case.
The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she cannot recall the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, which was in the past.”
She said the particular criminal charges had been “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” in regard to the charge.
