Three of Will County’s Most Respected Records Keepers Endorse LSF

In her bid to become the next Will County Clerk, Lauren Staley-Ferry has received endorsements from three of Will County Government’s most highly respected records keepers.

Staley-Ferry welcomed enthusiastic endorsements from current Circuit Clerk Andrea Lynn Chasteen, three-term Will County Recorder of Deeds Karen Stukel, and retired Will County Circuit Clerk Pam McGuire.

These three public officials bring tremendous experience to bear in their endorsements. Chasteen implemented many technological advances including electronic court filings, and she updated Web site access to the Circuit Clerk’s office. Stukel also initiated electronic filings in her office, allowing constituents to record important documents in minutes instead of days. And McGuire skillfully managed highly sensitive court records for Will County’s 12th Judicial Circuit for two decades.

All three praised Staley-Ferry, who currently serves as a Will County Board Member, for her leadership, professionalism, strong work ethic, community involvement, and integrity.

Chasteen said: “Lauren is dedicated to providing citizens with efficient and speedy service when they visit the County Clerk’s Office. Her successes as a process improvement specialist for a Fortune 500 financial institution prove she has the ability to enhance the efficiency of the office on behalf of Will County’s taxpayers.”

Stukel added: “Lauren is an incredibly hard-working County Board Member who will hit the ground running in the County Clerk’s Office. She will apply the latest technologies to make the Clerk’s Office more accessible and open to people of all ages and from every walk of life.”

McGuire lauded Staley-Ferry’s background in the private and public sectors.

“Lauren has invaluable experience as a leader in both county government and the private sector that makes her the strongest candidate to take over management of the Will County Clerk’s Office,” McGuire said. “She has proven to be an honest and accountable steward of our public resources on the County Board. She will guarantee the security of our local elections and serve our taxpayers with respect and integrity.”

Staley-Ferry said she is humbled by the endorsements from these highly regarded public officials.

“These women are all strong leaders who have effectively managed important and sensitive records on behalf of our community,” Staley-Ferry said. “It is tremendously gratifying that they have placed their faith in me and given me their support.”
