Your Democratic candidate Lauren Staley-Ferry committed a federal crime and also hasn't even taken the time to pay back the organization she stole money from.
As a voter and concerned citizen, I am sure you are as uneasy as we are and ask you to vote for another candidate. For those who do not have the insight that Ferry had taken a check from a former employer and made it out to herself. When caught she fled the scene of the crime and she went on to continue moving. When these issue was finally revealed, Ferry apologized, although 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 crimes.
This shows a lack of accountability for her own behavior not to mention just how she might run the Will County clerks office, if she even can!

4. Mike Madigan dispatched his team to back up Ferry only demonstrating this might lead to more issues for Will County
