A Rockland County Republican legislator has gotten caught up in what county officials say is a rising tide of foreclosures as he works to keep his Stony Point house, according to lohud.com.
Douglas J. Jobson, the county Legislature's deputy minority leader, is working on a loan modification for his house on Hoke Drive after it went through foreclosure and an auction in March. Before approving the house's sale at auction, the court is giving Jobson a chance to re-negotiate his loan, lohud.com reports.
Rockland County officials said foreclosures have outpaced 2015 for the first quarter. There have been 147 foreclosures from January to March, compared to 109 last year, lohud.com says.
