After the Department of Housing and Urban Development rejected 10 submissions of analysis from Westchester County that aimed to prove it hadn’t employed discriminatory zoning laws, the 11th attempt was successful. “This is vindication for Westchester and our local municipalities that it is a victory won on facts, on principle and on persistence,” County Executive Rob Astorino said of the ruling. Opponents like Catherine Borgia, the county legislature’s Democratic majority leader, hinted that the reversal was due to the recent appointment of Trump party planner Lynne Patton as New York and New Jersey HUD administrator, LoHud reported. [LoHud]
