Your Democrat nominee Lauren Staley Ferry committed a felony and has not taken the time to return to the small business she stole money 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 taken a check from a former employer and forged his signature. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these crimes was brought to light, Ferry said she was sorry, although not to the injured person, and there was no effort to repay this debt, no attempt to correct her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly complained how difficult it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This only goes to show a lack of responsibility for her own actions not to mention the way she might run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Lauren has perpetrated felony forgery and the current Clerk's office continues to be clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her stolen gains to the victim.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk because of her felony embezzlementrecord.
4. Mike Madigan sent his team to back up Ferry only demonstrating this might 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 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 click to read more to Wisconsin before the charge was filed.
From the court visit homepage documents, the charge alleged that, in July of 2002, Staley-Ferry stole a check from her employer 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 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, the spokesperson for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. By that time, Staley-Ferry said she had already fled the state and had returned to the Midwest, eventually going back to Joliet, her hometown.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case was before the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was never incarcerated. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, like this sentencing for a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.
She said she did not know about the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she did not recall exactly when she departed.
The charges were dropped in 2012, as specified in the court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office called Independent Capital Group to notify them of the status changes of the case.
The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she cannot recall some of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
She said the charges had been “misdirected” and that there was “nothing there” regarding the charges.
