HUDSON VALLEY LEGAL ADVOCATES STAND UP FOR WOMEN IN POVERTY BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH

rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

oanne Sirotkin, the attorney-in-charge of the Legal Services of Hudson Valley’s White Plains office, went to law school with just one focus: domestic violence. After starting her career in private practice, she joined Legal Services of the Hudson Valley in 2013 to work as a domestic violence services attorney manager. While she has since expanded her role, she describes her work with the organization, which handled 2,276 cases involving domestic violence last year, as giving a sense of “spiritual satisfaction.” And that’s the message that Legal Services of the Hudson Valley stresses to clients entering its specialized Domestic Violence

Unit. The unit includes 10 attorneys, four supervisors and three paralegals on staff experienced and dedicated to fighting for victims’ rights. About 70 percent of the nonprofit legal service’s clients are women, and domestic violence cases make up a large chunk of the services Legal Services of the Hudson Valley provides to them. Legal Services of the Hudson Valley offers free legal services to anyone with income at 200 percent or below of the federal poverty level, set yearly by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In 2016, a single person with an income of $23,600 or less would qualify for the services, as would a family of four with no more than $48,600 in total household income.

The fact that more than twothirds of the clients who require the legal nonprofit’s services are women matches up with national statistics on women and poverty. In the U.S., women of all races and

demographics are more likely to be poor than their male counterparts. A female-headed household is twice as likely as a male-headed household to be living below the poverty rate, according to a 2015

report by the National Women’s Law Center. In Westchester, 28 percent of female-headed households with children live in poverty, accord» LEGAL SERVICES, page 20

Will minimum wage hike help or hurt New York economy? Experts don’t agree BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfairinc.com

T

o understand what’s at stake if New York adopts a $15 minimum wage, consider home care agencies. The agencies assist elderly, handicapped and chronically

ill people, and enable them to remain independent at home. The services cut health care costs by keeping patients out of more expensive nursing homes and hospitals. Most clients are covered by Medicaid. But funding has not increased in recent years, so as

costs have gone up company profits have been squeezed. “We don’t control our monies,” said Sasha Guillaume, CEO of Mrs. G’s Services, a Port Chester home care agency that serves about 600 clients in New York City, the Hudson Valley and Long Island. “If we don’t get additional funds, everything will become extremely difficult.” MaryEllen Gibbs is a home care companion who makes $10 an hour. Last year, including overtime, she cleared $24,000. That’s not enough, she said. Her rent has doubled in the past decade but her wages have

barely budged. She depends on friends to help occasionally with rent, phone bills and keeping the electricity on in her $1,510 a month Riverdale apartment. “I’m living paycheck to paycheck,” she said. “I can’t keep going back to my friends.” The realities of the home care industry reflect two different economic views that could soon be tested in New York. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed raising the minimum wage to $15 from $9, to be phased in over three years in New York City and over five years in the rest of the state. Cuomo and legislative

leaders are secretly negotiating the issue as they close in on April 1, the beginning of the state’s fiscal year. The expected effects of a $15 minimum wage depend on one’s economic philosophy. Progressive economists frame the issue from the point of view of workers. Federal and state minimum wages have not kept pace with inflation, so buying power has eroded. At $9, or $18,720 a year for a full-time employee, a single parent with two children earns less than the official poverty line.

$300M development of former United Hospital focus of attention in Port Chester election

W

ith all six seats on the Port Chester Board of Trustees up for grabs in elections March 15, candidates, residents and labor and advocacy groups are focused on one issue in the village: a proposed $300 million development on the former United Hospital site. Following the voting, the board is now split evenly between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans Francis Ferrara, Gene Ceccarelli and Bart Didden join Democrats Gregory Adams, Daniel Brakewood and Luis Marino. They beat independent candidates Alex Chavarria and Alejandro Payan. None of the incumbents who ran for re-election were voted out. Ferrara and Didden, the winning challengers, take the places of Trustees Joseph Kenner, who did not seek reelection, and Saverio Terenzi, who died in January. Leading up to election day, much of the debate among candidates focused on the United Hospital project. Proposed by Greenwich-based Starwood Capital Group, it calls for a 135-room hotel, 217,000 square feet of medical office space, 90,000 square feet for retail or small restaurants, 500 residential units targeting young professionals, 230 55-and-over age-restricted residential housing units and about an acre of open public space on the property at 406 Boston Post Road. The hospital that formerly occupied the property closed in 2006. Starwood Capital Group purchased the property that same year for $28 million. A forum hosted March 10 by the Sustainable Port Chester Alliance — a 20-member coalition of faith, housing, education, labor and Port Chester resident groups — pushed the five candidates in attendance on issues related to the project. Before that, labor group Build Up NYC held a voter registration drive in the village aimed at “educating the public on the importance” public officials have on development projects and whether they steer them toward community benefit, according to Mike Halpin, communications director for the group. Neither group claims to be against the project as a whole. Both groups have expressed concerns with the project contributing to the overcrowding of Port Chester’s schools and its potential to drive additional traffic to the area. The alliance also says that the project could mean the loss of 134 units of affordable housing at 999 High St. on the United Hospital property.

An artist rendering of Starwood Capital Group’s proposed project.

The Sustainable Port Chester Alliance wants Starwood Capital Group to agree to a community benefits agreement before the project is approved by the village. The agreement, as proposed by the alliance, would ensure the project provides “good, safe” jobs to Port Chester residents, require at least 20 percent of the project’s housing be affordable and ask Starwood to help fund expansion of Port Chester’s schools to “ensure this project does not exacerbate current overcrowding.” Five of the eight candidates for the six open seats on the Port Chester Board of Trustees showed up for the event. Of them, only Ferrara questioned the necessity for a community benefits agreement. He said he came to the forum hoping to explain the value he thinks the project will have for the village. “We need to ask ourselves if the extent of our asks could very well make a project completely uncompetitive and not worth doing,” said Ferrara, who is also chairman of the village’s industrial development agency. “Are we willing to miss this economic cycle to put something on that United Hospital site that makes sense?” Ferrara said the site currently pays the village $650,000 in taxes annually. “Any intelligent project will pay many times that in year one,” he said. Starwood Capital Group is seeking a $60 million PILOT agreement over 20 years. The project is expected to create 2,800 jobs and bring in roughly $2 million to the village school district annually. The other candidates in attendance, Adams, Brakewood, Marino and Chavarria, expressed support for the idea of a community benefits agreement.

Brakewood, also a member of the Port Chester IDA, said these types of agreements should be incorporated further into the village’s structure. “We should have a committee that supports and advances these things, and we need to tone that muscle not just for Starwood but for other developments,” he said. Ceccarelli, Didden and Payan did not attend the forum. Joan Grangenois-Thomas of Sustainable Port Chester Alliance says Starwood Capital Group has so far been unwilling to meet with the alliance to discuss a community benefits agreement. Tom Corsillo, a spokesperson for the project, said Starwood Capital Group “continues to move the proposal forward” through both the environmental review process and meeting with stakeholders to finalize the plan. “As the plan moves through the public review process, we look forward to more dialogue with members of the community,” Corsillo said. The project is still in the final environmental impact statement and zoning approval process, according to Andrea Sherman, assistant planner for Port Chester. She said the FEIS could be adopted by summer, at which point the village board would start the site plan approval process. Terms on the village’s Board of Trustees run for three years and pay $5,200 annually. Port Chester has used a cumulative voting system since a federal court order in 2010 aimed at making the process more inclusive to the village’s Hispanic population. Residents can vote up to six times and can cast multiple votes for one or more candidates.

Squash LEDs shed light on courts, environmental issues BY ALEESIA FORNI

W

estchester resident Lee Witham has discovered a way to combine two of his passions, environmental protection and the game of squash. Having been involved with the sport for more than 30 years, Witham is using his business acumen as president of NortonLED, a provider of light-emitting diode or LED products, to launch his recent venture, LED Squash Lighting. The lights, designed by Witham specifically for use in squash courts, replicate daylight and help eliminate the glare that pose a problem with traditional fixtures. “There wasn’t a light that was good enough to be lighting a court from 20 feet in the air without it having so much glare,” Witham said. LED lights could bring squash clubs significant savings on electricity and reduce their overall energy usage. A typical fluorescent fixture in a squash court is 200 watts, while an LED light is 50 watts. “So straight away every club will get a 75 percent savings,” Witham said. A British native, Witham became increasingly interested in taking steps to protect the environment after studying and living for seven years in Germany, a country he says is “way ahead of anybody else in the world” in terms of environmental protection. Witham also coached squash in Malta and England before accepting a job in the U.S. in 1998, where he has since trained a number of the country’s top players, along with keeping employment outside of the sport while managing a familyowned wholesale florist business and pursuing his environmental interests. Eight years ago, Witham built an Eco Net-Zero Energy house in Parksville in the Catskills, an environmentally friendly home that features geothermal heating systems and radiant floors. In the building process, he realized that LED lighting was “the easiest thing” that made a large impact on energy conservation. Around that time, Witham and his wife sold the group of wholesale flower shops they owned, as Witham was “looking to getting into something else.” During a trip to South Korea with his wife, Witham connected with LED lighting manufacturers in that country, leading him to start his own American-based business, NortonLED in 2013. The Elmsford-based company provides LED lights direct from the Korean-based manufacturer for office buildings, factories, parking garages and warehouses. “It’s really been growing hugely in the

last year,” he said. “This is really the time with LED.” By importing his products direct from the manufacturer, Witham is able to keep his costs lower than many other U.S. companies, he said. “It’s cost me a huge amount of money to get this going, but I see the potential in the squash market especially,” he said. Start-up costs for the business have been “more in the hundreds of thousands than the tens of thousands.” Witham is also the squash director at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, one of the courts that installed the LED lights this year. The fixtures have also been installed at Westchester Squash in Mamaroneck and Witham aims to have installations in more than 100 clubs nationally by the end of the year, with projects already planned at clubs in Ohio, Massachusetts and New Jersey. The entrepreneur also plans to expand his business into neighboring Fairfield County. “It’s a long list,” he said of the upcoming expansions, adding that if clubs are able to afford the initial costs, “it’s such a no-brainer to do.” The LED fixtures cost roughly $2,241 per court, while installation costs vary by location. Additionally, Witham’s business carries Design Lighting Consortium certification, which allows facilities to earn rebates from the state or their electrical supply company, depending on their location. Witham noted that The Westchester Country Club received a 45 percent rebate for the entire cost from Con Edison. LED lights have significantly longer life

INBRIEF NEW DINING AND MALL EXPERIENCE AWAITS SHOPPERS AT THE WESTCHESTER Shoppers at The Westchester who miss its food court, which closed Feb. 15, are in for a treat: Simon Property Group LP, which manages the 12-acre, four-level White Plains mall that opened in 1995, will replace it with Savor Westchester.

The concept will feature seven different eateries — as yet unnamed — described as an eclectic array, including some of the city’s most popular and notable casual dining spots. Construction has already begun on the multi million-dollar transformation and is slated for completion in time for the 2016 holiday shopping season. Savor Westchester will have 325 seats,

an outdoor al fresco dining terrace new to The Westchester, a children’s play area, demonstration kitchen, an entertainment and technology lounge and concierge services adjacent to the dining area. “Plans for this area have been developed with a sense of community and our guests’ comfort and convenience in mind, providing an inviting atmosphere to enjoy a meal and socialize, indoors or out,” Meghann

Martindale, Simon’s leasing executive for The Westchester, said. Shoppers can still dine at the Mariposa at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom Café, PF Chang’s, Chef’s Table, Starbucks and Auntie Anne’s. Savor Westchester is part of The Westchester’s transformation, with an  expected completion date of Nov. 1. Martindale said a major portion of the work — which includes modernized elevators and lobbies, new flooring of stone tile and carpeting, energy-efficient LEDlighting in the parking garages and the mall’s interior, enhanced way-finding signage and upgraded men’s and women’s restroom facilities — will be done to minimize customer inconvenience when the mall is open to shoppers.

The way New York funds public education is overly complicated and could use more transparency, state Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli said in a report released March 14. DiNapoli called on state lawmakers to simplify the process during this year’s budget process. State aid to districts has increased $6 billion to $23.3 billion in 2015-16, according to the report. The proposed state fiscal year 2016-2017 Executive Budget calls for an increase of $991 million in state aid to schools. Total state aid funding for schools is projected to climb to $28 billion by 2019. Education aid is the largest single statefunded expenditure within the budget, making up an average of 23.6 percent of the state-funded expenditures over the last decade. The share the state spends is expected to rise 2 percent in the next 3 years to more than a quarter of the state budget, according to the report. Schools are funded in New York by local property taxes, state aid and, to a lesser extent, federal aid. DiNapoli’s report noted that state aid makes up a significant portion of school’s budgets — 35.9 percent in the 2014-2015 school year. The state attempted an overhaul of its system for education funding nearly a decade ago. That attempt failed, DiNapoli says, and funding for schools has instead become more complicated. “As stakeholders undertake planning and negotiation for  the upcoming budget, there is an opportunity to work toward a simplified, more equitable and transparent model for funding education in New York State,” the report concluded. — Janie Rosman and Ryan Deffenbaugh


Residents weigh in on Tappan Zee Bridge parking area plans BY JANIE ROSMAN jrosman@westfairinc.com

A

handful of Westchester residents recently told officials their thoughts about parking options for the pedestrian and bicycle path that will be built on the northern side of the new Tappan Zee Bridge. In response to the community’s concerns about parking for the approximately 3-mile path, the Thruway Authority in 2014 collected data from 10 similar bridge and park facilities, including the Rip Van Winkle Bridge in Catskill, Westchester RiverWalk in Tarrytown and Rockland Lake State Park in Congers, to better estimate how many pedestrians and bicyclists will use the new bridge. The study concluded Rockland County needs 54 parking spaces. Westchester’s 97 spaces can be accommodated on the site of the former state police barracks in Tarrytown, according to the report. The Westchester parking project would include construction of a Thruway maintenance facility and a bridge visitors center fronting South Broadway at a cost of $1.5 million. Sleepy Hollow resident Daniel Convissor at a March 15 public hearing in Sleepy Hollow said the path should be open 24/7 but cited safety as a major concern on the Westchester side. “A signalized crosswalk with a median refuge area is necessary at the intersection of Route 9 and the shared use path,” Convissor told executive project engineer Jamey Barbas and Daniel D’Angelo, deputy chief engineer with the state Department of Transportation. “The environmental assessment explicitly says no changes will be made here. That opinion is dangerously mistaken.” Convissor said it would be dangerous for cyclists exiting the shared use path to turn left onto Route 119 and similarly for cyclists riding north on Route 119 who wish to turn left towards the path. He said it will generate notable economic activity for the county, attracting cyclists from Orange, Rockland, Putnam and Dutchess counties. “We’ll see loads of cyclists who now ride up 9W on the west side of the river now swing across the bridge to Tarrytown to the train and/or back down this side,” he said. David Hodgson of Sleepy Hollow, who said he often uses the bridge, also was concerned about the Route 9 crossing. “I have an 11-year-old that likes to ride with me, and this is a chaotic situation,” he said. Hodgson was one of several cyclists

who want the path to open early in the morning and to remain open late at night. David Patel of Tarrytown expressed surprise that the state didn’t include the other side of the Routes 119 and 9 intersection, which includes a Tarrytown shopping plaza across the street from the planned parking area. While Westchester Cycle Club director Mark Garrahan said some bicylists will drive to the parking area for the six-mile round trip across the new bridge, another cyclist said neither the amount of parking spots their location in relation to the TWB nor Penachio path is a concern for members.

WAGE — From page 1

workers more productive and less likely to leave their jobs. Their extra earnings are plowed back into the economy as they buy basic products and services they couldn’t afford before. Traditional economists frame the issue from the point of view of employers and consumers. As wages increase, prices for products and services increase. Some companies, especially larger ones, will absorb the higher costs. Others will make ends meet by reducing hours, switching to automation or firing workers. Some businesses will fail. Cuomo is clearly in the progressive camp. He describes the minimum wage as a social compact and he harkens back to Franklin Roosevelt, who enacted the first federal minimum wage, 25 cents an hour, in 1938. A full-time worker “should be able to stay out of poverty, take care of their family and live with dignity and respect,” he said in his 2016 State of the State policy book. He declared that $15 an hour will lift 110,000 families out of poverty, directly benefit 2.3 million workers — about a quarter of the workforce — boost the economy by $15.7 billion and have no discernible effect on the number of jobs. The Business Council of New York State foresees very different outcomes. It estimates

that $15 an hour will cost 200,000 to 600,000 jobs, according to Zack Hutchins, director of communications. The hardest hit will be companies upstate, where the economy has not fully recovered from the Great Recession and mom-and-pop Main Street enterprises that will have less ability to absorb costs or adapt. “This will hurt working people,” he said. While economists debate the overall effects, they tend to agree that the impacts will vary from region to region and industry to industry. The restaurant, retail and health care and social assistance industries rely heavily on low-paid workers. About one in five fast-food restaurants in New York are likely to close under a $15 minimum wage, according to a survey last year of more than 900 restaurants by the Employment Policies Institute in Washington. Nearly half of the businesses said they would reduce employee hours or staffing, and more than two-thirds would raise prices. The scale of Cuomo’s proposal makes it difficult to assess. Moderate increases in the minimum wage, according to some economic studies, have had little or no effect on jobs or hours worked. But Cuomo’s proposal would increase the minimum wage by 67 percent in three to five years. That’s on top of an increase to $9 at the end of last year, from $7.25 in 2013.

That’s why the home care industry, where even a 25-cent per hour wage increase is hard to absorb, is wary of Cuomo’s proposal. “We do not oppose a $15 minimum wage,” said Claudia Hammar, president of the New York Association of Health Care Providers. “The crux of the issue is funding.” Home care agencies in Westchester County are typically reimbursed $16.80 to $19.09 an hour for personal care services. The prevailing wage for aides is $10, plus $3.22 in supplemental benefits. That leaves less than $4 to $6 to pay for the nurses they report to, travel, overtime, training, workers compensation, and other operating costs. The association estimates that the increased minimum wage will cost home care businesses $239 million in the first year, according to Laura Haight, vice president of public policy, and $2.2 billion when fully phased in in the fifth year. With profit margins at 1 to 2 percent, she said, there is no room to absorb more costs without a corresponding increase in Medicaid payments. The union that represents health care workers agrees that state Medicaid funding should be increased. But it has calculated lower costs: $200 million in the first year and $500 million by the fifth year, according to Helen Schaub, director of policy and legislation for 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East. The state and federal government split Medicaid costs evenly. Schaub said the federal government would probably adjust its rate if New York increases its share. At the employee level, Gibbs said, an extra $5 an hour would help her pay bills without relying on the kindness of friends. And at age 56, she could start cutting back from the 60 to 70 hours a week she tries to work. “I could relax more.”

“They should be paid more,” said Guillaume, the head of Mrs. G’s Services, who employs 460, mostly part-time workers. He said home care work is stressful emotionally, mentally and physically, but he needs more Medicaid funding to make the pay raises work. Increasing the minimum wage could have a perverse effect, he said. That’s because home care workers already are paid above the current minimum wage. If employees in less stressful jobs make the same as home care workers, his workers will leave the business. If you have a choice between flipping burgers and cleaning up people, he said, “most will choose to flip burgers.” Haight said agencies will merge and some will close and patients will suffer. “We could see the collapse of the New York City home health care industry this year,” Haight said. Agencies in Westchester and the rest of the state would begin to feel the impact by the second year. Cuomo’s proposed budget does not factor in additional funding for Medicaid reimbursements. The Democratic-controlled Assembly supports the minimum wage and has proposed a $200 million boost for Medicaid services. The Republican-led Senate did not include a minimum wage increase in its budget proposal. Under New York’s “three men in a room” budget process, whereby the governor, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Senate majority leader John Flanagan negotiate in secret, the public probably won’t know until April 1 whether New York will become the first state in the nation to enact a $15 minimum wage. “It’s all rumors at this point,” Haight said. “Unless you are in that room you don’t know what’s happening.”

The property was once owned by New York City Mission Society, an organization that was founded in 1812 to inspire hope to the masses of immigrants arriving in the city.

By the 1950s, the society operated Camp Minisink, Camp Sharparoon and Camp Green Acres. In 2005, it sold the campgrounds. For now, the property will be used for offices. Eventually missionaries will be housed and trained there. “We are bringing it back to its original religious purposes,” Michos said. “What was decisive for us is the fact that New York Mission Society used to reside on the property, serving and raising social workers.” The grounds have a conference center, dining facility, lodging and recreational facilities. After the missionary society sold it, it was used as a private hunting and fishing reserve. World Olivet Assembly bought three separate properties, from Chippawalla Properties in Wingdale, Douglas and Kristin Londal of Bronxville and Fraser Conservation LLC, also based at the Londal’s Bronxville address. The $30.8 million came from the organization’s own funds and from a fundraising campaign, Michos said. The site is one mile from Olivet University in Wingdale. The Bible college was founded

ASK ANDI

BY ANDI GRAY

Lessons from millennials about work-life balance Millennials are very guarded about their time, but we need flexibility. Any suggestions? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Remember when

you had a life, before you got totally wrapped up the in the business? Make agreements with your employees about what is acceptable. Staff your business to allow flexibility and recovery ability. Happy employees and a good work environment mean productivity and profits. Once upon a time, you probably had a life outside work that was as important as the time and effort you put into the business. Balance between work and personal life can help prevent burn out, contribute to good health and lead to stronger interpersonal relationships. It might be worth getting back to some work-life balance. How many hours are you working each and every week? How often do you interrupt personal plans to attend to business demands? How many friends do you have who say, “I haven’t seen you lately”?

When is the last time you took a personal “play day”? How often do you find yourself running out of energy or enthusiasm at work? Take a lesson from your millennials and carve out more time for yourself. It’s not so much the hours worked, as it is the work that gets accomplished in the time available. If someone is falling behind, the answer may not be to work more hours. Instead, help them focus on learning how to manage time better. Check that all tools to do the job are up to date. There’s nothing worse than spending twice the time needed on some task because a piece of equipment isn’t working right. Have a budget and schedule for regular equipment upgrades. Be on the lookout for new ways to do things and be open to changing how things are done. Look for opportunities to gain higher-level skills. Get smarter, faster and make fewer mistakes. That, too, can lead to a huge improvement in mastering the work at hand. Find out what people want and insofar as possible, give it to them. For those who

want an extra day off, discuss reducing total hours and lowering pay. Alternately, consider expanding hours/day to get to a full fourday work week. Hold most meetings on a single day each week, so that people can plan around when you need them to be available to report in. As the business grows, so will the workload. Expect that nothing goes perfectly. Always have recovery time in the schedule, so that when things do go wrong, you don’t fall behind. Plan for people to take days off; ensure there’s enough coverage by hiring temps, cross training for jobs and adding parttimers to the staff. Keep in mind that millennials often function best on teams. They’re actively looking for advice, nurturing and recognition — all things they were raised on at home and in school. Building teams to handle the workload allows them to gain experience, create a culture of support and education within your company and sets everyone up for success. Let the team work out the best way to accomplish goals. Work groups will rotate work among all mem-

bers and get tasks completed productively, efficiently and on time. And a final thought, avoid the temptation to cut corners on staffing, especially as your older staff members start to reduce hours and work toward retiring. Make sure you have enough personnel coming up through the ranks to keep things on track. Having enough people lined up to handle the work and then some is key to keeping that work-life balance in check. Looking for a good book?

than lighting used at most squash courts. Witham said that traditional lights need to be changed every three to five months, while his LED lights will last about 22 years. “So it’s obviously a big difference.” He said he expects that clubs will save between $12,000 to $15,000 per year with the LED lights. Witham’s lights also feature a polycarbonate exterior, “so even the hardest [hit] ball can’t break it,” he said. Witham said he plans to reinvest 20 per-

cent of profits from his squash lighting business into the game he loves. “I’m hoping to sponsor some of the up-and-coming squash players in the world,” he said. Having competed in the Professional Squash Association World Tour in the early 1990s, Witham knows first-hand the economic struggles of a professional squash player. “I was a top player myself, and I know how tough it is outside the top 50 to make a living,” he said. Witham also plans to invest profits in tournaments and give discounts to urban squash programs looking to install the fixtures.

hite Plains city officials and New York City developer Jonathan F.P. Rose were joined by state and federal officials March 10 at a ribbon cutting to mark the opening of the first new apartment tower and an education and training center built on the city’s redeveloped downtown public housing campus. Formerly called Winbrook Housing, the White Plains Housing Authority’s 450-unit, 67-year-old apartment complex at South Lexington Avenue and Quarropas Street was renamed Brookfield Commons at the start of its transformation two years ago to a mixeduse, mixed-income community by the housing authority’s private development partner, Jonathan Rose Cos. LLC. Officials celebrated the opening of the long-term project’s first phase, The Prelude, a $42.2 million, 10-story, 103-unit apartment building that houses the new White Plains Education and Training Center. City officials said the center, known as WPETC, will provide workforce training, in concert with industry employers in the area, for Brookfield Commons residents and others in the community seeking new or better jobs or starting a new career. They said WPETC will offer real-time job opportunities in the market while supporting the employment needs of the region’s high-growth industries, including culinary and hospitality, medical and health care, technology, and entrepreneurship. The center also will offer training and education in budgeting, home buying, English language skills for the workplace, and resume and interviewing skills. White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach in a statement at the opening called the first phase Brookfield Commons “a unique project in Westchester County and the region” because it includes public housing residents in the greater community and its success, brings job training and skills development directly to public housing residents, and strengthens “the city’s economic position and attractiveness by being able to say to employers and potential employers, we can provide you with

INBRIEF 399 KNOLLWOOD ROAD NEARS FULL OCCUPANCY SINCE 2015 SALE Brokers at GHP Office Realty LLC have brought the occupancy rate to 97 percent at 399 Knollwood Road in Greenburgh after leasing 30,523 square feet of office space since taking over as leasing agent for the 152,000-square-foot office building last July. The realty firm in West Harrison said those lease deals at the Class A property off Interstate 287 were worth $4.5 million. Jamie Schwartz, executive vice president of GHP, represented the building’s owner, SKA Equities LLC, which acquired the former RPW Group property in mid-2015 for $24.5 million. Schwartz was assisted in the lease deals by GHP associate Harrison Lyss. Schwartz in a press release attributed the stepped-up leasing velocity to “professionals who want a White Plains address without paying White Plains CBD (Central Business District) prices.” He said the building was at 88 percent occupancy when GHP was named exclusive leasing agent by the new owner. Schur Management Co. Ltd. in the Bronx manages the property for the first-year owner. GHP highlighted these lease deals at 399 Knollwood: • Jeffrey L. Sapir, standing Chapter 13 trustee for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, renewed and expanded its office space to 5,639 square feet for six years. The tenant was represented by Craig Ruoff of Rakow Commercial Realty Group. • DiLapi & Co., CPA P.C., renewed its 3,066-square-foot lease for seven years. DiLapi was represented by Craig Ruoff of Cushman and Wakefield in the transaction; • Dolgetta Law PLLC newly leased 2,305 square foot of space for five years. • Ameriprise Financial, Reinas and Brown Wealth Management, LLC relocated its office from Yonkers and leased 2,278 square feet of space for 10 year • Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill, Inc. newly leased 2,156 square feet of office space for five years. • Crown Abstract, Inc., a real estate title company, signed a five-year lease renewal for 1,282 square feet. Brokers said Crown has been a tenant there for more than 13 years.

tenance facility near where the shared use path would start. “Forbes called Tarrytown one of the 10 prettiest towns in America,” she said. “That doesn’t belong at the gateway of our beautiful town.” Bloom said the bridge project “could have been an opportunity to create another Main Street. It (the building design) certainly doesn’t honor our heritage,” she said, mentioning historic names and properties. “It makes me sad.” Tarrytown Village Administrator Michael Blau anticipated the path will increase pedestrian and bike traffic. “It is our hope that people who park at the shared use path will want to visit the downtown and other stores and restaurants throughout the village,” he said. Across the bridge in South Nyack, planners have proposed two options, both of which have the shared use path and the Esposito Trail meeting. One plan would close the east/southbound Thruway entrance near Cornelison Avenue and South Broadway in South Nyack while moving the parking lot closer to the path and bridge. That plan would cost $14.5 million to complete, while the other option

would cost $10.8 million, according to state officials. South Nyack village trustees and a village task force have approved the more costly plan. The Thruway Authority agreed last year to move the path’s terminus away from the Cornelison Avenue Thruway entrance after residents protested it would disrupt their quiet neighborhood. South Nyack’s current daily traffic amounts to about 12,500 cars in a village of 3,500 residents. South Nyack received a $250,000 grant through the bridge project’s community benefits program to study the feasibility of redesigning and redeveloping Thruway Interchange 10. Consultants from Willdan Financial Services and Vanasse Hangen Brustlin Inc. in February presented results of their feasibility study for that land. The public comment period for the bridge parking options remains open until 5 p.m. April 1. Comments can be sent by email to info@newnybridge.com. All comments will be reviewed and responded to during the next few months. After the deadline, the Federal Highway Administration, the Thruway Authority and the state Department of Transportation will review comments in the state’s environmental assessment of the project and those submitted during the public comment period. They are expected to choose a preferred alternative this summer.

SPECIAL REPORT LAW BY PETER S. SLOANE

Trademarks: A closer look at common misconceptions

T

rademark law protects consumers against confusion between company names, brands and other indications of origin. For example, it would arguably violate trademark law and infringe the rights of Walmart, if a retailer opened a store named “Wal-Mate” because consumers would be confused into thinking that the two were associated. That kind of comparison seems simple enough to make, but it leads individuals and businesspeople to mistakenly believe that the effective protection of trademarks is likewise simple. Online trademark services and other “trademark mills” encourage this kind of misconception by offering rock-bottom prices for trademark filings, asking few questions of applicants and failing to provide sophisticated legal advice. As with most things in life, though, there are some ways of doing things that are better than others.

TRADEMARK ADOPTION The nuances of trademark law come into play at the inception of adopting a new company name or brand. The most common misconception is that the best branding strategy is to adopt a mark that tells consumers exactly what they are buying. For example, Instant On would make a great name for a hot water heater or an igniter for a barbecue grill. However, this approach runs smack into a wall when applying for registration. The trademark laws do not allow one to register a new name that merely describes a feature or function of the product. This misapprehension is exacerbated when clients look to other names as examples. The descriptive name Food Network is registered only because it has developed a reputation, an exception to the rule preventing registration of descriptive terms. It ordinarily takes millions of dollars in advertising and sales and years of use, before a descriptive term is entitled to registration. As a result, if an applicant wants to protect its name against use by others, unless it is prepared to put the time and money into

achieving notoriety, it should refrain from adopting a descriptive name.

TRADEMARK SEARCHING Many business owners are unaware that it is possible to search the availability of a new name or mark, or even the fact that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will run its own search when examining a new application. Even if they are aware of the latter, it would be unwise to rely entirely on the findings of the Trademark Office. The office examines whether there is a likelihood of confusion only with earlier active applications and registrations. Just because it approves an application does not eliminate any trademark risk. Third parties with prior unregistered rights, developed through use, can still petition to cancel a registration within the first five years after it issues. This makes the searching done by the Trademark Office of limited value when evaluating marketplace risk. The limitations of Trademark Office searching are why trademark attorneys often suggest ordering and reviewing a full trademark search provided by an outside search company. In addition to more comprehensively searching the Trademark Office records, these searches cover state registrations, company names found in business directories, domain names and unregistered names and marks found in publications and on the Internet. Just like a doctor would have a hard time diagnosing a medical condition without examining the results of an MRI, a trademark lawyer is not really able to provide an opinion on the availability of a mark for use or registration without reviewing a full trademark search report.

TRADEMARK FILING Beyond trademark naming and searching, the misperceptions about trademark rights continue through application filing. Trademark rights exist only in relation to specific goods and services. Identifying the most appropriate goods and services to cover is part of the art of trademark practice.

Trademark applicants often think it is necessary to identify every possible item they may sell or service they may provide in order to adequately protect the mark, but there are all kinds of downsides to overbroad coverage. It may result in a more expensive application, increase the risk of conflict with third-party marks and make the application vulnerable to attack by others on the ground of fraud. In most cases, a narrowly tailored application should still protect the mark for closely related goods. In the rush to get an application on file, many trademark owners fail to appreciate that a carefully crafted application will also mitigate the risk of refusal by the Trademark Office. There are all kinds of statements that an applicant can make when filing to avoid inquiry or objection by the examining attorney. These include disclaiming any descriptive portion of a mark, indicating whether

the mark has any meaning or significance in connection with the goods or services, translating any foreign wording in the mark and describing the features of any design elements. Failing to be proactive when filing and dealing with such office actions later raises the ultimate expense of an application and delays issuance of the registration. The foregoing offers a glimpse into just some of the myriad misconceptions involved in trademark adoption, clearance and filing. These misunderstandings can easily be cleared up by consulting in advance with experienced trademark counsel, who can provide a cost-effective strategy for minimizing risk while maximizing the scope of trademark protection.

A

t its most basic level, information governance (IG) is the management of data across the information lifecycle. Although traditionally thought to focus squarely on records management, IG includes data security, privacy, knowledge management and e-discovery, along with related compliance and risk management issues. However, a significant factor in IG risk does relate directly to records management, specifically the failure to appropriately manage records while allowing a “keep everything” culture to exist. Promoting data minimization and disposition requires much more than merely adopting a records management policy and retention schedule. Employees must be provided the means to comply to avoid a “rules without tools” environment. To achieve policy compliance, organizations must address the four key aspects of records management: people, process, technology and controls.

INFORMATION GOVERNANCE RISK

Poor records management gives rise to substantial risk. This includes adverse litigation consequences from preservation fail-

ures, regulatory fines deriving from compliance breaches, negative impact on business needs, loss of sensitive business information, and, in the event of a data breach, business continuity concerns and violation of privacy laws with related reputational damage. By some measures, and as found in a recent study by the Ponemon Institute, the cost per lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information exceeds $150. While there is no question that organizations should take steps to enhance their information security practices, the surefire method of avoiding unauthorized access to data and minimizing many of the abovementioned risks, is to avoid storing data in the first place.

RECORDS MANAGEMENT AND RETENTION POLICIES

In the absence of a records management policy, or rather an enforced records management policy, a “keep everything” practice will naturally evolve. In the absence of a litigation or investigation-related duty to preserve, organizations should consider their business needs and regulatory require-

ments when crafting retention schedules. Although this appears simple on the surface, many organizations implement unnecessarily lengthy and detailed retention schedules with hundreds of record classes falling under numerous retention periods. Compliance for employees can be difficult even when schedules are pared down, but without appropriate tools to facilitate compliance, there’s virtually no chance the policy will be followed. When compliance is onerous and burdensome, employees will violate the policy and often resort to a “keep everything” approach, thereby defeating the policy’s entire purpose. To achieve employee compliance, a path of least resistance must be provided.

ACHIEVING RECORDS MANAGEMENT COMPLIANCE

There are four key components to achieving compliance with records management policies: people, process, technology and controls. Program governance: People Records management begins with program governance. Depending on an organization’s size and structure, the following components may be implemented: • Records Management Steering Committee. This committee consists of key stakeholders including from the legal, compliance and information technology (IT) departments. The steering committee has authority over retention schedules and is responsible for high-level program management and oversight. • Records Management Team. A records management team comprises program administrators, including a records coordinator. This group administers the program, coordinates policy implementation and oversees records management training sessions. • Departmental Records Coordinators. These individuals coordinate records inventorying and destruction within their respective departments, conduct training of department employees and serve as liaisons to the records management team. • Executive Sponsor. An executive sponsor provides direct support to the steering committee and serves as a “champion” for the program. Without an effective executive sponsor, a records management program will fail to gain organizational acceptance. Policies and procedures: Process A set of records management policies and procedures addresses responsibilities of employees, processes for managing records, destruction procedures, legal obligations, employee training and compliance monitoring. The policy also incorporates a retention schedule. Organizations must tailor their procedures to fit their business processes, needs and structure.

Technical solutions: Technology Compliance in records management requires providing employees with tools that promote desired records management practices, i.e., data minimization. This may include a content management system that permits assignment of record classes to automate data disposition upon expiration of assigned retention periods. Compliance will not be achieved in a “rules without tools” environment. Program management: Controls Program management, specifically employee training and compliance monitoring, must be tailored to fit the organization. This may include development of a training program with quarterly sessions, annual departmental assessments, an online repository of training materials and distribution of periodic reminders. Training as to “official” versus “unofficial” records may decrease retention of “unofficial” documents.

POTENTIAL ACTION ITEMS When developing a records management program or assessing an existing one, organizations should ask a host of questions, such as: • What level of support is needed from an executive sponsor? • Is the steering committee vested with sufficient authority? • Will existing IT systems and repositories promote desired retention practices? • Are the records management team and the IT department positioned to cooperate and collaborate in purchasing and configuring tools? • Is additional records management training needed? • Are employees motivated to comply with the policy? • How are records maintained by third parties handled?

• Is an overly complicated retention schedule impacting the feasibility of compliance? • Is an appropriate legal-hold procedure in place?

FINAL THOUGHTS

The primary focus in achieving compliance with records management policies and document retention schedules is creating path of least resistance. Adopting a policy and retention schedule is merely the first step. Organizations must focus on implementing an appropriate program structure and avoiding a “rules without tools” environment.

ing to a report from the New York State Community Action Association. There’s a “strong intersection between poverty and domestic violence,” Sirotkin said. While domestic violence can happen to women of all income levels, women with household incomes less than $7,500 are seven times more likely to experience domestic violence compared to women with household incomes more than $75,000, according to a report from the American Civil Liberties Union. All of this means the center is consistently taking on domestic violence cases. Some of the cases have male victims, but Sirotkin said most victims they see are women. However, the group didn’t always have a special team of attorneys to handle domestic violence cases. When Legal Services of the Hudson Valley CEO Barbara Finkelstein took over the center’s top post in 1995, Legal Services of the Hudson Valley was a 28-year-

old organization that went by the name Westchester Legal Services. It had just the one office in White Plains and a staff of 18. In 20 years, Finkelstein has grown the center from that one office and a $2 million annual budget to a $15 million total operating budget that keeps the lights on in eight offices across seven counties: Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Putnam and Sullivan. The center now employs a total of 130 people, including 83 attorneys and 19 paralegals. About 300 attorneys work for Legal Services of the Hudson Valley pro bono each year. The organization is the only provider of comprehensive free civil legal services in the seven-county region. Finkelstein started the domestic violence unit in 1996. The program had just one attorney at the time on a fellowship funded by the state’s Interest on Lawyer Accounts fund. Since its founding, the unit has provided legal services to more than 15,000 survivors of domestic violence. Those services include seeking orders of

protection against abusers, fighting for child custody, filing for divorce and immigration assistance. “I think we have carved out a niche in that we are very well known for that and well known for the civil legal services work that we do,” Finkelstein said. Work for the attorneys at Legal Services can be high-stress. In domestic violence cases especially, the stakes are high and the clock is ticking. Attorneys need to move quickly to establish trust and seek legal relief for the situation. Clients often arrive at Legal Services of the Hudson Valley offices when they have first separated from an abusive relationship. It’s in that period that a victim can be in the most danger. “People often ask, ‘Why didn’t she leave sooner?’ Or, ‘Why didn’t she say something?’” said Sirotkin. “It’s because the leaving period is the most vulnerable — the most likely time a victim could be assaulted or killed. Many of them know that.” For the attorneys, caseloads are also high

and cases are often brought to litigation. That provides the center a strategic advantage for clients, according to Legal Services leaders. Attorneys with the organization are willing to go to court rather than settle, when others might not, they said. But it also requires a lot of work and resources. In the face of that stress, Sirotkin said it’s often the spiritual satisfaction of the work that powers the organization’s attorneys. “We get to help people who otherwise would have no way to afford an attorney and who otherwise would possibly face terrible outcomes,” she said. Because of its range of services, the nonprofit can also provide domestic violence victims with what attorney Jill BradshawSoto refers to as “the other piece.” BradshawSoto, attorney-in-charge for Legal Services of the Hudson Valley’s Mount Vernon office, said domestic violence victims often are facing other legal issues that can be handled within the organization’s operation. “If a domestic violence victim is being evicted, we handle that,” she said. “When food stamps are out of whack or public assistance is not correct because they want her to go for child support when she doesn’t have to, we handle that as well.” The caseload for the organization jumped 25 percent from 2014 to 2015. Last year its lawyers handled 14,000 cases that had an impact on an estimated 32,000 people in the Hudson Valley, according to Tom Gabriel, chief development officer for Legal Services of the Hudson Valley. The organization, which is funded through a mix of federal, state and county aid, is increasing the services it provides into new areas of law as well, Finkelstein said. Lawyers there have seen an increasing need for immigration work. The organization also launched a new unit dedicated to veterans and military families and the LGBTQ Legal Project, focused on fighting discrimination against people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual or queer. There are about 200,000 people in Westchester who would qualify for Legal Services of the Hudson Valley’s services based on income, according to Finkelstein. She estimated the organization meets about 30 percent of the overall need in the region. “If we had twice the staff, maybe we could hit 60 percent,” she added. Still, she said, Legal Services of the Hudson Valley will continue outreach initiatives such as dinners, exhibit tables at festivals, presentations and partnerships with area advocacy and charitable groups. Those initiatives can serve a dual purpose: help with fundraising efforts and ensure the organization’s name is known to people who need help. “Funding for civil legal services has been neglected for so long that we have quite a ways to catch up,” Finkelstein said. “And as we grow and get out in the community, more and more people know about us.”

Ferguson’s Distribution Center in Coxsackie is the recipient of a $200,000 economic development grant from Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. under the utility’s Shovel Ready Sites program. Ferguson is the largest distributor of commercial and residential plumbing supplies in the United States. “Central Hudson recognizes the importance of new private sector investment and job creation in the Hudson Valley” said James P. Laurito, Central Hudson president and CEO. “That is why we are so pleased to partner with Ferguson as they open their 11th regional distribution center and we welcome them to Greene County.” “We are grateful for the support we’ve received from the Coxsackie community and Central Hudson,” said Bob Feller, Ferguson’s manager of construction. “Central Hudson’s Shovel Ready grant is another example of the strong investment the utility and region is making in growth and we are excited to be a part of it.” The 460,000-square-foot facility distributes plumbing, lighting, appliances, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, waterworks, flame retardants, fire suppression and related building materials, equipment and supplies. Coxsackie was chosen over sites in Connecticut and Rhode Island due to its central location to markets and an attractive businesses environment.

FINANCIAL ADVISERS OPEN NEW PALTZ OFFICE Two financial advisers with a combined 40 years of financial advisory experience recently opened SRI Investing LLC in New Paltz to serve a growing list of clients in upstate New York and the New England region. SRI Investing, which stands for Sustainable, Responsible and Impact Investing – is believed to be the first investment firm solely devoted to socially responsible investments to open in the Mid-Hudson Valley. It is a collaboration of Gary R. Matthews and Amy D. Pender. Matthews, began his career in finance as a CPA and tax consultant in 1979 and earned a Ph.D. in social ethics in an effort to find a “better way of doing business.” He then dedicated his professional practice solely to SRI, beginning in 2000. Pender began her career as an educator. She put her teaching skills to use aiding nonprofit organizations with fundraising and mission-driven work that sought to make the world a better place. In 2010, she joined Merrill Lynch and acquired both Series 7 and 66 securities licenses before joining First Affirmative as an investment adviser representative in 2013 and then co-founding SRI Investing.

Jacqueline Holtzer has been elected to the board of directors of Friends of Karen, a charity serving families in the New York tristate region. A former human resources executive in the banking industry, Holtzer was introduced to Friends of Karen in 2004. A visit to the organization’s North Salem headquarters was, she recalls, “an absolute eye-opener.” She began volunteering immediately on several committees to help further its mission. Friends of Karen provides comprehensive support, at no cost, to families caring for a child battling cancer or another life-threatening illness. Personal advocacy from a team of experienced professionals – social workers, child-life specialists and creative arts therapists – ensure that each family receives the emotional, financial and practical support needed to stay resilient and able to cope throughout a child’s treatment.

ERA INSITE REALTY ADDS TO WHITE PLAINS TEAM Nikolas Stanovic and Angela Thompson have recently joined the ERA Insite Realty headquarters office in White Plains. Stanovic has a background in financial services and property management. He holds his Series 7 and 63 broker licenses and is a certified property manager, serving as chief executive of his family-owned property management firm, Stanovic Property Management in White Plains. Over the past year he worked primarily with rental clients at Home Sweet Home in Mamaroneck and upon recently acquiring his real estate broker’s license, he joined ERA Insite as an associate broker and will also expand into listings and sales. Thompson comes to ERA Insite with her real estate salesperson’s license and recent experience supporting a broker who primarily services distressed property listings. Prior to that, she spent more than 40 years in the hotel, travel and media industries, working for companies from small trade organizations to Fortune 100s. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, and primarily educated in the U.K., Thompson has resided in the U.S. for more than 35 years after having lived, worked and travelled globally most of her life and career, she has the knowledge and skills to assist clients moving into or out of Westchester to or from anywhere in the world.

“When you hear that somebody has a child with cancer, you know it’s devastating, but you don’t really understand all the details of what goes on for that family,” Holtzer said. “What Friends of Karen does is to guide each member of the family all the way through a harrowing crisis. That’s life-changing.”

The partners involved in the Greater Walkway Experience project – Scenic Hudson, Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and Walkway Over the Hudson – unveiled signs in Lloyd and Poughkeepsie, two of the many new Discovery Zone signs now dotting Highland and Poughkeepsie during a recent press conference. Leaders from the three organizations were joined by city of Poughkeepsie Mayor Rob Rolison, town of Lloyd Supervisor Paul Hansut, sign sponsors, and many stakeholders in launching the latest phase of the branding and marketing program. Part of a broader initiative known as Walkway as Gateway to Success, the program aims to leverage the economic power of the walkway so that it more effectively benefits the municipalities that connect the elevated park on its east and west sides. The Discovery Zone signs, which supplement the larger, already installed Gateway Signs, provide historic and wayfinding information for visitors to the Greater Walkway Experience and specifically direct them to the nine Discovery Zones located in the town of Lloyd and the city of Poughkeepsie.

ARTUSO’S PASTRY MARKS 50TH YEAR Anna Artuso’s Pastry Shop in Yonkers kicked off its 50th anniversary on March 10 with a yearlong celebration and a renaming of the street on which it is located to Anna Artuso and John Puma Way. Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, City Council President Liam McLaughlin and members of the McLean Avenue Merchant’s Association plus the Yonkers Chamber of Commerce were present for the renaming ceremony. The pastry shop, which is at the corner of McLean and Martha avenues, announced an annual calendar of events, including an attempt to set a record in the Guinness Book of World Records, a 50th Anniversary Cake Contest and children’s events. Since Anna Artuso, an Italian immigrant, opened the doors of the pastry shop on March 10, 1966, the family, including grandson RJ Puma, has been serving cookies, cannoli, custom cakes and breads to customers throughout Yonkers. Known in the neighborhood as “The Cookie Lady,” Artuso began the tradition of sending cookies overseas to soldiers serving in Vietnam as well as local heroes at area fire stations. This tradition is continued today by her grandson.

You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. #60442
