Green Bay Officials Caught Bugging City Council Offices

  • Records obtained by The Star News Network show Green Bay city officials installed at least three audio recording devices in City Hall — without notifying the City Council or the public.
  • Alderman Chris Wery, who represents Green Bay’s 8th District, described the secret recordings as the kind of “Big Brother stuff” found in a George Orwell novel.
  • “This is an astonishing affront to people’s privacy rights,” Wery told The Wisconsin Daily Star in an interview Tuesday.
  • The Green Bay City Council is scheduled to meet tonight, and Wery said he has a lot of questions for Mayor Eric Genrich, a highly partisan Democrat, and other city officials.
