Press Release

Washington, DC –Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement regarding news that Trump has appointed Lynne Patton to lead the Department of Housing and Development’s (HUD) Region II office:

          “This appointment is a slap in the face to New Yorkers, NYCHA residents and all Americans who rely on well administered HUD programs to have livable housing and safe communities. By all accounts Ms. Patton is fundamentally unqualified for this position.  I strongly urge the Administration to revisit this decision, which appears on its face to be shameful patronage at the expense of working families.”
