Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
January 1, 2021
PHOENIX — Citing a “toxic” political environment and other issues, Maricopa County’s outgoing treasurer said that Thursday will be his last day in office even though his successor won’t be sworn in until the second week of January.
Outgoing Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora announced his resignation on Wednesday. In his resignation, Flora also announced his intention to assist with the recall of Supervisors Clint Hickman, Bill Gates, Jack Sellers, and Steve Gallardo.
Excerpt from Flora's resignation letter:
“It has also come to my attention that the incoming Treasurer cannot be legally sworn in until January 11, 2021 and therefore according to the Arizona Constitution, my term would extend until that time,” wrote Flora. “This is unacceptable to me for several reasons. First, the liability bond protecting me expires December 31st, 2020 and I would become personably liable for any loss. Second, the political environment at the County has become so toxic I have no desire to endure further abuse. Finally, I intend to participate in the recall of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors which puts me in direct conflict with County government. For these and other reasons, I resign my office of Maricopa County Treasurer effective on the statutorily prescribed date of midnight, December 31st, 2020.”

Glad you are up for this, I hope everyone appreciates what you are doing. I sure do. Thanks!!!!!!
Thank you Royce Flora for your long service to the County. We will miss your help for the seniors, who need help with their property taxes. It is time to recall the BOS as you have said. The fraud in this election was just terrible. I saw it with my own eyes when I went to vote before the election date.
Thank you to a true patriot.
Good for him!
Had not given much thought to this man or office. Now, I am proud we still have some politicians with personal integrity and the guys to stamd by his talk.
