Your Democrat candidate Lauren Staley Ferry has committed a felony and has not even taken the time to actually pay back the small business she had stolen 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 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 crimes was brought to light, Ferry apologized, but not to the victim, and there was no attempt to repay this debt, no attempt to fix her wrong, rather she apologized and publicly complained how difficult it was to be confronted with her own blunders.
This shows a total lack of responsibility for her behavior not to mention the way she may run the county clerks office, if she even can!
