Port Wentworth councilman Vincent Hogan resigns

By Don Logana - bio | email

PORT WENTWORTH, GA (WTOC) - Former Port Wentworth Mayor Pro Tem, Vincent Hogan, has resigned his office of At Large Council Member for the city of Port Wentworth.

Hogan, who resigned as Mayor Pro Tem in January, is facing charges he falsified election documents. Authorities say Hogan did not list a prior forgery conviction on his application to run for Port Wentworth City Council. Hogan was not to have any contact with anyone on city council nor mayor until the investigation was complete.

Hogan's attorney dropped off a resignation letter, dated Feb. 18, to the City of Port Wentworth Tuesday night. 

In the letter, a much shorter letter than his previous resignation, Hogan writes:

"I hereby resign the office of At Large Council Member for the City of Port Wentworth."

One sentence, signed by Vincent Hogan.

Unlike like the previous resignation, Hogan did not request anyone to fill his office.

Mayor Glenn Jones told WTOC Wednesday morning he could not comment in great detail on the resignation.

"Yes, we have received Mr. Hogan's resignation and per our charter, Mayor and council will meet soon to fill the vacancy," Jones told WTOC.

Jones says several names have already been talked about as possible replacements, but did not give specifics.

A civil suit filed by the Port Wentworth City Council to have Hogan removed from office is expected to be dismissed in light of the resignation.

Meanwhile, Hogan is scheduled for another court hearing next week.
