Your Democrat candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry has committed a felony and hasn't even taken the time to actually return to the organization she had stolen from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I believe you are as worried as we are and ask you to vote for the other candidate. For those who do not have the knowledge 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 finally revealed, Ferry apologized, although not to the injured person, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no intention to correct her wrongdoing, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how hard it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This shows a total lack of accountability for her behavior much less the way she may run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 things to think about before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony forgery and the current County Clerk's office has been clean of such corruption.
2. Ferry did not pay back her stolen gains to her former boss.
3. Ferry might not even be bondable to be our clerk due to her felony criminalrecord.
4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to back up Ferry only demonstrating this could lead to more issues for Will County
A Will County Board member running for the County Clerk was brought up on charges for felony forgery in 2003 but did not appear in court 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.
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 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 you can try these out to Amanda Jacinto, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa Co. Attorney’s Office. By then, Staley-Ferry claimed she had already left the state and had returned to the Midwest, eventually going back to Joliet, her hometown.
.Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention period,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was never arrested. Instead, Jacinto said, it go to this site appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, Jacinto said, sentencing for a forgery conviction would likely look what i found be restitution and probation.
She said she did not know about 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, according to court papers. Jacinto said, in March of 2012, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reached out to Independent Capital Group to let them know the change in the status of the case.
When The Herald-News called Staley-Ferry on Thursday, Lauren said, while she did not remember several of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry stated. “Obviously, that was many years ago.”
Lauren said the particular charges was “misdirected” and that there were “nothing there” in regard to the charges.
