Town hall held on affordable housing

Legislator John Nonna hosted a town hall meeting Wednesday night on the controversial settlement reached with the federal government to build affordable minority housing in largely white Westchester communities.

There was standing room only at the meeting, which took place at the town hall in Valhalla.
