Personal bio:
Ernst Franzen
Alderman District 4

7836 St. Anne Ct.
Wauwatosa, WI  53213

Ph: (414) 475-5575

Raised and educated in Milwaukee, I’ve been a Wauwatosa resident since 1988. 

Professional: A journalist for nearly 40 years, I started my career with the Wauwatosa News-Times and then spent 35 years at the Journal Sentinel as a reporter, editor, columnist and opinion writer. I wrote primarily on local and state government, as well as issues such as the environment, development, history and open government. Education: BA from Carroll College in Waukesha; two years of graduate study in history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. 
Family: Married to Eileen since 1986, we are the proud parents of five children who attended St. Jude’s grade school. Our daughter Mary is a proud graduate of Wauwatosa East High School. 

Special message: As a newly appointed alderman, I believe it is my responsibility to make connections with as many constituents as possible. Please email me () or call me (414-475-5575) with any concerns or issues you’d like to discuss. I’d also be happy to meet for coffee. And expect to see me knocking on your door just to say hi, although that may wait for warmer weather. I thank the Common Council and citizens for this opportunity and promise to provide the best representation I can to my constituents and our city.
