Our Westchester
Dear Friends:

I will be a guest on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program tonight at 9:00 PM.

Watch Hannity Interview, additional commentary not covered below

 Feds Accusing NYC Suburb of Segregation?

Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino weighs in on controversy…

We will be discussing the affordable housing settlement that was entered into with HUD by Westchester County during the Spano administration. Though my administration is ahead of schedule in constructing 750 affordable housing units, as per the agreement, the federal government is now looking to force the county to accept new demands that could bankrupt our county and force us to sue our local communities. It’s social engineering at its worst.

Please learn more about this very important issue.

As always, thanks for your support.

An Important Housing Settlement Update

Earlier this summer, I held an important press conference regarding Westchester’s Housing Settlement with the Federal government. HUD is trying to force me and Westchester County to dismantle local zoning, sue our municipalities and bankrupt our taxpayers. I will not allow that to happen.

We have been successful in working with our communities. In fact, we are ahead of schedule in terms of getting the housing built; far more than the settlement’s goal of 100 units by the end of the year. The Federal Monitor has approved 164 of the 750 units we are required to build. We have surpassed expectations because my administration is working with–not threatening–our local communities.

HUD, on the other hand, is making demands that have no basis in the law in general or the settlement in particular and that go way above anything any community in the United States has ever been asked to do.

We agreed to do what we agreed to do. Read the settlement for yourself. But we can only go so far. We cannot allow HUD to dismantle local zoning and bankrupt our taxpayers.

I encourage you to please take a moment to watch my press conference, read our press release and read the letter HUD sent to my administration. In the letter, HUD no longer refers to the agreement as a “housing settlement”. It is now an “integration order.” It is clear that HUD is using Westchester County as a test case for similar attempts to crush local government control nationwide.

My administration will continue to build upon the very real success we have had in actually building affordable housing, but we will not be intimidated by those who do not understand our communities, the laws that govern them and the New York State Constitution.
