Several Third Warders are meeting with Victor Wogen tonight to discuss his intentions as concerns his constituency. They would also like to ensure that Mr. Wogen will accept the petition calling for his resignation in a dignified and gracious manner before he takes his seat Monday evening.
Inauguration will take place during a special meeting at 6 p.m. in City Council Chambers, with the regular meeting beginning at 7 p.m. Citizens for Wogen Resignation will begin to arrive about 5:45 p.m.
I now know more about Victor Wogen than I do some of my own family members. I know how things played out at the post office with the smear mailers, I know that even his friends call him “Slick Vic” and I know the reason he won’t resign is that a couple of his anonymous backers are heavy hitters in local construction and real estate circles.
