”This campaign has been centered on outreach. I have been walking door-to-door for several months and the positive response has encouraged me to work even harder every day. Supporters of all backgrounds have stepped up to help spread my message and I could not be more grateful for all of their efforts.” Staley-Ferry said.

On Tuesday, October 30, United States Senator Dick Durbin offered his support headlining a meet and greet for Lauren Staley-Ferry in Bolingbrook, rallying supporters to continue to work through Election Day. Senator Durbin said, “Lauren Staley-Ferry has a clear vision for the Will County Clerk’s office, and she is a vocal advocate for voters’ rights… We need to fight for her, because she’s fighting for her community.”
