After ABC15’s Let Joe Know team broke the story of disable veteran Jim Boerner of Mesa, who lost his home when the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office jumped the gun and auctioned off his mobile home, Treasurer Royce Flora took on the fight.
While Flora was determined to assist Boerner, the Sheriff’s Office seemed to show little interest in righting the wrong in a press conference this week.
On Friday, ABC15 announced that Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery met with the Treasurer’s Office, and Sheriff’s Office “to review the next steps in resolving issues related to the sale of Mr. Boerner’s primary residence. The County Attorney advised all at the meeting that Arizona statutes do not authorize any County official to invalidate the sale that has already occurred. Nonetheless, County officials are committed to working with counsel for Mr. Boerner to assist him in keeping his home.”
