A group of black leaders criticized Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino's alleged failure to comply with state fair housing laws Sunday afternoon during a public news conference in Harlem.
In front of the Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building, they accused Astorino of dragging his feet regarding the terms of a 2009 out-of-court settlement requiring Westchester to build and market affordable housing for minorities.
The group of critics was made up of political, religious and community leaders.
They say the federal money that Westchester receives to create affordable housing must be spread evenly throughout the county and not limited to minority populated cities like Mount Vernon and Yonkers, as it has been in the past.
