NYC Councilwoman Slated To Become HUD Director For NY/NJ Region

Following Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) Recommendation last month, Brooklyn City Councilwoman, Alicka Ampry-Samuel (D-41st District), is slated to be Appointed by President Biden, as the New Regional Director of the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Replacing a Controversial Appointee of Trump.

“New York would be lucky to have such a dedicated public servant,” Schumer wrote.

A former New York City Housing Authority Official, Ampry-Samuel represents a swath of Central Brooklyn that includes 27 Housing Developments, making it the Single Largest concentration of Public Housing in the entire Nation.

Ampry-Samuel holds a Law Degree from CUNY and has worked in Public Service her entire Professional Life, and Replaces Lynne Patton, who became a Poster Child for Cronyism when she scored the plum Gig from Trump.

Patton had No Previous Experience in Public Management, and her main Qualification for the Job, was apparently being the Wedding Planner for Eric Trump’s Nuptials.

During her Stint in the Post, Overseeing Public Housing in New York and New Jersey, Patton was Twice found in Violation of the Hatch Act, which Bars Federal Officials from Partisan Politics.

She left the Post when Trump left the White House, in January, and has since been Fined and Barred from Public Service for Four years.
