James Kane is now a councilman in North Wildwood. Kane was sworn in to a council seat during the city’s Tuesday evening council meeting to replace Rick Ogen. Ogen passed away suddenly last month and Kane has been chosen to fill his seat. Kane is 43 years old and has been a republican committee member in North Wildwood. Nine people submitted their names to fill Ogen’s seat; the list was whittled to three before Kane was selected.
