Huntington Beach City Councilman Keith Bohr appears to be mired in financial difficulties that include an attempted foreclosure on his house, a bankruptcy filed for a downtown-based company he co-owns, and a lawsuit by a lender asking him to pay millions.
Bohr owned half of Team Companies and served as its secretary, according to bankruptcy records filed in May.
Bohr's partner, Jeff Bergsma, served as president. Bergsma was the architect for the Bomburger restaurant, and Bohr was pushing for it to obtain an alcohol license.
According to the Chapter Seven bankruptcy filing, Team Companies' estimated liabilities were between $500,000 and $1 million. The councilman said the bankruptcy was finalized last year. There were no assets to distribute and the case was finalized in July, according to a United States Bankruptcy Court deputy clerk.
