WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Westchester County executive candidates Rob Astorino and Noam Bramson got confrontational in their debate Wednesday night.
As WCBS 880’s John Metaxas reported, the debate was so heated the candidates spent more time attacking each other than answering questions. Still, policy differences did emerge.
Astorino, the Republican incumbent, stuck up for the tough stand he has taken in the county’s settlement with the federal government to build affordable housing,
“It’s called defending our communities from an overreaching, aggressive federal government that is trying to dictate new terms in the housing settlement,” Astorino said.
