It is quite unsettling that so many at City Hall default to secrecy. When I asked at a meeting where Alderman Wogen is living, Council in effect told me that we aren’t entitled to the information.

Now suddenly they are ‘fessing up through the local press.

Third Ward Alderman Victor Wogen said Tuesday that he has been living with his brother in the city’s second ward since being charged last month with domestic battery after police say he shoved his wife during an argument.

Much appreciation should go to those who took the time to request information of the city. Also, congratulations to the Wogen Watch blog for the scoop.
