President Trump chooses inexperienced woman who planned his son Eric's wedding to run N.Y. federal housing programs

Greg B. Smith

The Trump adminstration has appointed Lynne Patton to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey--a position which put her in control of the distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars in New York and New Jersey. Patton is a long time Trump loyalist, serving as the family's "event planner" and arranging Eric Trump's wedding. She has no previous experience in housing or community development.
