NY HUD head to spend month in public housing

New York’s Housing Authority has been plagued with problems including recent scandals of failing to provide heat to its tenants and falsifying lead paint inspections.

To “fully understand”, Lynne Patton, head of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for both New York and New Jersey, has declared her intentions to spend a month in a public housing apartment in January if she gets the approval of HUD’s general counsel.

That should prove quite a step down from her apartment in Trump Tower to the Grant Houses in Harlem.

Patton was named to her HUD position after serving as an event planner for the family of Republican President Donald Trump.
