Your Democratic nominee Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a federal crime and hasn't the time to actually pay back the small business she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe you are as uneasy as we are and ask you to vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the insight that Ferry had taken a check from her place of employment and forged his signature. When caught she moved out of state and she went on to continue moving. When these issue 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 fix her wrong, rather she apologized and openly talked about how difficult it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This shows a total lack of responsibility for her own behavior let alone just how she might run the Will County clerks office, if she is able to!
4 things to think about before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony theft and our current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Ferry did not repaid her debt to her former boss.
3. Lauren may not even be bondable to be the clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to support Ferry only showing this might 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 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 web link 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 documents reported she did so without the knowledge or permission of her employer.
A 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 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 could not recall exactly when she departed.
The charges were dismissed in 2012, as specified in the court documents. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reached out to Independent Capital Group to let them know the status changes in the case.
The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she cannot More about the author recall the exact details, she rejects the charge.
“I am alerted to that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
She said the particular charges had been “misdirected” and that there was “nothing there” in sites regard to the charges.
