Your Democratic candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and hasn't the time to return to the company she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as concerned as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the awareness that Ferry had taken a check from her place of employment and forged his signature. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, but not to the injured person, and there was no effort to pay off this debt, no intention to fix her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly talked about how difficult it was to be confronted with her own crimes.
This shows a lack of responsibility for her own behavior let alone the way she may run the county clerks office, if she even can!
4 thoughts to consider before voting:
1. Ferry has perpetrated felony forgery while our current Clerk's office has been without corruption.
2. Lauren has not pay back her stolen gains to her former boss.
3. Lauren 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 i thought about this County
A Will County Board member running for county clerk was charged with 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.
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.
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 then, Staley-Ferry said she had already left the state and had returned to the Midwest, eventually going back click here for more to Joliet, her hometown.
Ms. .Jacinto said Staley-Ferry’s case predates the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office’s “records retention time,” but it seems Staley-Ferry was not arrested. Instead, Jacinto said, it appears Staley-Ferry was sent a summons to appear in court, which she failed to do.
Also, the Sheriff said, sentencing on a forgery conviction would likely be probation and restitution.
Staley-Ferry said she was unaware of the charges until she had already left Arizona, although she said she could not recall the exact time she departed.
The criminal 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 notify them of the change in the status of the case.
When The Herald-News reached out to Staley-Ferry on Thursday, she said, while she did not remember some of the details, she rejects the charge.
“I am aware of that,” Staley-Ferry said. “Obviously, that was in the past.”
She stated the particular criminal charges had been more information “misdirected” and therefore there were “nothing there” in regard to the charges.
