Eric Trump’s Wedding Planner Put In Charge Of NY And NJ HUD Programs: Gothamist

Patton, who listed her job on LinkedIn as the event planner for the Trump family since 2009, wrote that the job entailed organizing celebrity golf tournaments and other upscale events. Patton also appears to have overstated her scholastic achievements, listing a law degree from Quinnipiac and an enrollment in Yale. Quinnipiac’s registrar told the News that Patton only attended law school there for two semesters, and HUD officials told the News they weren’t sure what Yale was doing on her resume.In addition to working as an event planner for Trump celebrity golf tournaments, Patton also planned Eric Trump’s wedding, and helped run the now under investigation Eric Trump Foundation from 2011 to January of 2017.The appointment of an inexperienced Trump loyalist could spell trouble for NYCHA, which was already facing threats under the proposed Trump budget for 2018. That budget would reduce federal money given to NYCHA for capital repairs from $300 million to $100 million, according to a City Limits report that examined the housing agency’s attempts to right itself before the Trump administration began.
