He served as a member of the 13th Regiment, New York National Guard from 1889 to 1898 and advanced through the ranks from private to sergeant. From 1914 to 1920 he served on the New York City Board of Aldermen. He served as delegate to the Republican state conventions in 1914, 1918, 1920, 1922, 1924, and 1926.
Hogan was appointed secretary to the Collector of the Port of New York. In 1934, he was arrested and accused of attempting to extort bribes in exchange for aid in obtaining master plumbers' licenses for unqualified individuals. In 1937, Hogan testified for the state in the trial of the accused murderers of Samuel Drukman, and as a result he received a suspended sentence for his role in the license scandal. In 1935, he was accused of accepting bribes to help three Italian immigrants avoid deportation by obtaining U.S. citizenship. Hogan provided false affidavits stating they had arrived before 1924, which would have made them eligible for citizenship, when in fact they arrived after 1924, meaning they were ineligible. Hogan was convicted and sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.
