FEDS SAY EMPLOYERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO FIRE THOSE WHO DON’T COMPLY BY KEVIN ZIMMERMAN kzimmerman@westfairinc.com

uidance issued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) makes it clear that workers could potentially lose their jobs if they refuse to receive a Covid-19 vaccination. “In general, employers may require their employees to be vaccinated in order to return to the workplace,” said Jonathan Orleans, chair of the Labor and Employment Department at Bridgeport law firm Pullman & Comley. “But employers are also required to make accommodations in certain circumstances.” Earlier EEOC guidance

established that employers may screen employees for Covid-19 symptoms. “Employers may ask all employees who will be physically entering the workplace if they have Covid-19 or symptoms associated with Covid19, and ask if they have been tested for Covid-19.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified a current list of symptoms, which includes fever, chills, cough and shortness of breath. An employer may exclude those with Covid19, or symptoms associated with the virus, from the workplace because “their presence would pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others,” it continues.

Luiz Aragon to share expertise gleaned from New Ro’s successes

The latest EEOC guidance issued in December makes it clear that employers may require staff to be vaccinated before returning to the workplace. But, Orleans said, employers may be obligated to waive the requirement for employees with disabilities who have medical reasons for not getting vaccinated. Such cases often involve those who have a known history of severe allergic reactions — anaphylaxis — to components of the approved vaccines. An employee who requests a waiver on that basis must undertake a careful analysis of the threat the unvaccinated employee might pose to themselves or others, » GET THE VAX

uiz Aragon, New Rochelle’s former commissioner of development, believes other municipalities can learn a lot from the way the city’s revitalization has unfolded and is thinking of establishing a national consulting operation that could, among other things, help them do that very thing. Aragon retired at the end of 2020 after having capped his public service career with seven years in the New Rochelle development position. During his time as commissioner, 32 projects received site plan approval with about a third either completed

or currently under construction. He will be a consultant to New Rochelle while a replacement is being recruited. “One of the things I’m looking at is starting a consulting firm. I’ve been contacted by a number of people and that’s probably the path that I’ll follow,” Aragon told the Business Journal. “At a national level I’ll be looking at municipalities outside of the tristate area that need some help. I’m looking forward to helping as many municipalities and as many people as I can. I really like to implement change that has positive impact on peoples’ lives and I want to continue to do that. “I want to continue to help the Hudson Valley

grow and hopefully help not only Westchester but the region and various municipalities within it accomplish that goal. The same formula is not going to be correct for every municipality but what we’ve done in New Rochelle can be adjusted to the scale that is needed for each locality.” Aragon said he anticipates there will continue to be growth in the New York metro region in the post-pandemic real estate world, especially in cities such as New Rochelle, Yonkers, White Plains and Mount Vernon. “This past year forced us to take a step back and look at it differently and rethink the future of New Rochelle so an adjust-

onnecticut’s efforts at attracting new businesses may have been knocked down by Covid-19 — but only temporarily. So says Peter Denious, president and CEO of AdvanceCT, the state government’s economic development entity that formerly was known as the Connecticut Economic Resource Center. That rebranding, designed to reflect its mission of collaborating more closely with the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to drive business recruitment and retention, looked to be just the first of AdvanceCT’s momentous moves when it was announced last February. And then, of course, “We got thrown the pandemic curveball,” Denious said. “We spent several months focusing on something that wasn’t our ‘day job,’ as I call it,” he told the Business Journal. “Instead we got involved with the Reopen Connecticut Advisory Group — I was a part of its business committee — that was put together to advise the governor on how to reopen businesses during the initial peak of the pandemic.” Denious said his committee, chaired by Oni Chukwu, the executive chairman of Norwalk-based Aventri, spent much of its time canvassing businesses and their trade associations, organizing that feedback and sharing it with the broader group. “Obviously everyone’s priority was to focus on how to get the state back up and running,” he said. “But now our focus is back on our original mission, to help companies that are here to grow and expand and to recruit companies to come to the state.” Marketing plays a key role in AdvanceCT’s strategy, he said. “We have to make sure our value proposition is straight, that it’s industry-specific.” That has been a part of the state’s economic development game plan since Gov. Ned Lamont took office; DECD Commissioner David Lehman has targeted such sectors as tech, financial services, manufacturing (including aero-

The long-held perception of Connecticut as not being “business friendly” is still one that is being overcome, Denious said. “We’re focusing now on things we can do to help make our state more attractive to business,” he said. Part of that effort is the restructuring of the Connecticut Property Transfer Act, which requires the state to provide regulations that would obligate owners of environmentally challenged properties to clean up toxic spills and other forms of pollution. Such changes reportedly could create as many 27,000 jobs and result in the sale of some 4,200 properties. “That helps us to say, ‘Hey, look, we are making progress on something that’s been really burdensome and costly,’” he said. The state is also refocusing on the evergreen issue of licensing and permitting, which “has long been a cumbersome issue,” Denious said. It is also “very complicated,” meaning that AdvanceCT and DECD are still in the analysis stage; an official strategy for alleviating those labyrinthine processes could come FCBJ

before the end of the year. Also reflecting its “new year, new purpose” credo is the fact that AdvanceCT recently has added 11 employees, including business development specialists. “We’re a lot further along in being proactive versus reactive,” he said, “and it’s beginning to pay dividends.” Those dividends include some 65 potential relocations that are currently in the organization’s pipeline, up to 30 of which he characterized as “front and center, very active — there’s a lot of discussion going on.” Denious said the much-commented upon exodus from New York to Connecticut — “Tens of thousands of people have moved or changed their address to the state of Connecticut in the last few months,” Lamont said in October — “also works in our favor. (The pandemic) has caused a lot of people to rethink their expansion plans or what their real estate footprint might be.” While “We do want a vibrant New York — Fairfield County and southwestern Connecticut in general benefit from that,” Denious said, “a lot of people are voting with their feet. Companies may ultimately decide to keep their headquarters in New York City

but open a satellite office here, and the future of the new workfrom-home model is still an open question.” Even so, “These projects take months to land,” he said. “It’s typically a beauty contest with multiple states involved. But we really are all in this together — nationally, regionally, and within our state.” Some factors, such as labor and energy costs, will always be part of the discussion, he added. AdvanceCT also remains committed to helping retain companies that are already here, with a renewed focus on small businesses. “They make up 99% of our businesses, and the (pandemic’s effect on them) has been absolutely devastating. It’s incredibly important for us to help our Main Streets and our municipalities get across the chasm.” As for the unveiling of AdvanceCT’s and DECD’s a longterm economic strategy, originally expected last spring, Denious said, “We were pretty close to that being launched when the pandemic hit. We’re now in the midst of reevaluating and recasting our priorities, working with the business community and our municipalities, as well as the governor and the state. It’s on the docket for 2021.”

THE UPSIDE Doughnut pop-up takes off in Wilton BY KAREN SACKOWITZ ksackowitz@westfairinc.com

othing goes together like barbecue and doughnuts, right? Okay, maybe not. But the story of Hugh Mangum’s latest culinary venture goes from one to the other deliciously, beginning with the pandemic lockdown. Like many tristate restaurant owners, pitmaster Mangum had to quickly shut down and shift operations at his wildly popular Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue locations last March, including one at the Westchester Mall and five in Manhattan. Pivoting from a full-service eatery to a pickup and delivery operation, Mangum and his two business partners, Christos Gourmos and Micha Magid, also worked to feed frontline workers free of charge. Spending more time at home in Wilton proved an adjustment as well. “In the beginning, most chefs were like, what the hell do we do? We weren’t used to cooking at home. If it’s a day off, we’re ordering in,” he says. “Then I started really enjoying being with my wife and kids in a way that I wasn’t able to previously. We were cooking a ton.” As fans of sampling doughnuts wherever they travel, it wasn’t long before the family started a friendly competition. “My youngest son made a batch of doughnuts. Then my eldest son, who had made some sourdough starter at the beginning of quarantine, made a batch of doughnuts too. It just kind of started a snowball effect.”

Good things are happening out there Soon, the family was making doughnuts every day. Hugh and his wife, Laura, spent hours tweaking their recipe in search of the perfect yeast-raised doughnut. The first time they coated the final recipe in the brown butter glaze they came up with, they knew they were on to something special. “We just kind of looked at each other and were like, we need to share this.” Mangum approached his good friend Tim Labant, owner of dining mainstay Schoolhouse Restaurant and gourmet pizza hotspot Parlor, both in Wilton. He also brought him some doughnuts. “I said look, ‘You have a mixer, you guys are dealing in flour. Wouldn’t it be cool if I did a Sunday morning at Parlor? Just a popup, sold a few doughnuts to some friends?’” he recalls. “It was literally just to be creative. There was no long-term business idea.” Labant immediately said yes. On June 6th, he posted to his Parlor Instagram that there was going to be a doughnut pop-up called Rise the next morning. Prices were set at $3 or $4 a doughnut, depending on filling. “I’m a total New York restaurant guy. I expected maybe 50 people to show up and each person to get like two doughnuts because in New York, no one buys dozens,” Mangum says. “Well, the first order was four dozen, sight unseen. We were sold out in 28 minutes.” Once the shock wore off, Rise became a full family operation. While Mangum and Laura regrouped every week to see what worked and what could be better, their three sons got a crash course in customer service. “Quinn, Lucas and Henry — Laura and I marvel at them as human beings,” he says. “ I’m so stoked that they’re my kids. They’re really awesome humans, and they worked super hard.” As demand exploded, Rise quickly outgrew the space at Parlor; Labant immediately offered a sublet of Schoolhouse, which WCBJ

Sunday mornings quickly spread to Saturdays, too. As the weather has cooled, portable heaters have been added for customers, who regularly wait in line up to 90 minutes or more to get their gourmet doughnut fix. Though doors open at 8 a.m., Mangum says it’s not uncommon to see folks lining up at 7:30 am or earlier. Laura’s hot chocolate made from scratch is a great motivator, too. Mangum says that just like Mighty

Quinn’s, which he and Laura started by trucking their smoker to a market in Brooklyn, the birth of Rise Doughnuts has been an organic, community-driven experience. He’s genuinely grateful for what has come out of a very tough time. “I think that what Covid has forced a lot of people to do is to become introspective about things. For me, it forced the hustle that I already had, into hustling something else that I didn’t even plan on; and, it’s a family business,” he says. “In so many ways, 2020 sucked; but this has been an enormous silver lining.”


Home unimprovement: Yonkers couple demands $1.8M from contractor BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfairinc.com

A

Yonkers couple who nearly tripled the size of their home is demanding $1.8 million from a contractor for allegedly botching the job. Alessandro and Tracey Demarinis accused ANM Realty Group Corp. and Anthony Martirano of negligence and breach of contract in a lawsuit filed Dec. 18 in Westchester Supreme Court. “Portions of the addition have been totally unusable,” the complaint states, and the couple was “compelled to expend thousands of dollars for remedial work.” Martirano did not respond to an email requesting his side of the story. The Demarinises live in a two-story house on a 0.76-acre lot on Wyndcliff Road in the Beech Hill section of Yonkers. They bought the property for $650,000 in 2004, according to county records. They hired ANM Realty Group in 2019 to build a two-story addition, enlarging the house from 5,600 square feet to 14,385 square feet, including a basement basketball court. ANM Realty, based in northeast Yonkers, bid $700,000 for the project. Alessandro Demarinis is no stranger to contracting. He is CEO of Demar Plumbing Corp., on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and is associated with Demar Mechanical Inc. and D&D Sheet Metal Inc. at the same address. The scope of the project is detailed in a 15-page agreement and 36 pages of specifications and drawings. The Demarinises claim that the job was not completed in accordance with the contract. ANM and Martirano “caused damage to the home because of their poor workmanship,” the lawsuit states, “and failure to take proper precautions during the remodeling.” The complaint states that substandard or incorrect materials were used, for example, and stucco and stone finishes were installed incorrectly. Several of the alleged deficiencies concern waterproofing and drainage, such as failure to install vapor barriers. The couple claims they are owed $1,811,437 for overpaying ANM and Martirano, hiring contractors to fix defects and paying vendors ANM failed to pay. They also are demanding an accounting of all expenses the contractor incurred, including construction materials, tools and equipment, payroll and subcontractors. Purchase attorney Gregory J. Tembeck represents the Demarinises.

and what steps might be taken to mitigate the threat. Those with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or hypertension generally have been encouraged to get vaccinated, as they are more susceptible to contracting the virus. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued an advisory for pregnant women that, while noting a lack of data, posited that vaccines “should not be withheld” from those who are pregnant or lactating and meet priority criteria. The EEOC guidance states that while pregnant women, as well as those ages 65 or older, have been classified by the CDC “as being at greater risk (of contracting the virus) does not justify unilaterally postponing the start date or withdrawing a job offer. “However,” it adds, “an employer may choose to allow telework or to discuss with these individuals if they would like to postpone the start date.” Making accommodations Orleans said another situa-

This past year the pandemic has made us rethink the way we operate.” Aragon said municipalities need to be redesigning and adjusting their downtown planning in order to accommodate future needs. He said that even with changes resulting from experiences during the pandemic the concept of transit-oriented development for cities will be very much alive. “People are still going to need to go to and from locations; however, it’s creating the ability for some of it to happen at a local level. Downtowns are still going to be very important because that’s where you can provide that service so you can get out of the house and walk a few blocks to your office building,

He said the tip of the downtown pyramid, literally and figuratively, is the planned 48-story building at 11 Lawton St., for which construction drawings were being prepared at the time of his retirement. Aragon said that one of his takeaways from his time as development chief in New Rochelle has to do with interacting and communicating with the public. “You don’t go from an undeveloped area to all of a sudden these buildings are up. There is a period of construction that is very, very uncomfortable, where there is construction everywhere, where there is dust, there are holes in the ground, you can’t really go from point A to point B,” Aragon said. “I would have spent more time explaining that to the community so it didn’t come as a surprise.

Most of his employer clients so far are taking a position of encouraging, rather than mandating, vaccinations, he noted. Asked whether the EEOC guidance could result in a flurry of wrongful termination cases, Orleans said: “There are always people who will bring a lawsuit. And I guarantee there will be lawsuits, if there aren’t already, brought by people who were let go for refusing to be vaccinated, claiming their legal rights have been violated. “But,” he added, “I don’t think those lawsuits will get very far.”

Luiz Aragon think for me that’s the big lesson learned.” He said that other municipalities might learn from what’s been happening in New Rochelle so that developers are more likely to invest in a city if the city makes it easy for them to do so by cutting red tape and making sure that policies don’t present insurmountable obstacles. Under Aragon’s watch, devel-

opers approaching New Rochelle with development ideas were told that if they came in with plans that fit within the city’s predetermined parameters their projects could be approved in as little as 60 to 90 days. “If anybody is going to invest there is one thing they are looking for and that is certainty. We tried to provide as much certainty as we could and I give credit

to the elected council and mayor and our city manager,” Aragon said, adding that the residents of New Rochelle as well as those in government can be proud of what was accomplished. “We became a shining example to the nation as to how a municipality should grow, so I’m very proud of the work that we have done,” Aragon said.

hen Brittany Rae informed her family and friends that she wanted to open a retail store, the reaction was unanimous. “Everyone tried to talk me out of it,” she recalled, with a laugh. “I was very discouraged by my own family, who were telling me that brick-and-mortars are phasing out and all of that. But this is my dream — I’ve always dreamed of having a brick-and-mortar.” In October, Rae’s dream came true when she opened Richual Boutique in a ground floor store within Bridgeport’s Arcade Mall. Rae’s brick-and-mortar store followed three years as an e-commerce thrift store. “I’ve been a thrifter since high school,” Rae said. “Even before that, yeah, I used to thrift with my grandmother. It has always been something that I’m really passionate about.” Rae’s approach to thrift shop retailing is to focus on high-quality merchandise that would not look out of place in a pricey department store. She personally acquires her inventory by scouting other thrift and consignment shops, estate sales and e-commerce sites, keeping in mind her shoppers’ budgets and circumstances. “My goal is to help people who face adversities,” she explained. “My goal is to make you look good, and I want to create a luxury space for people that can’t afford that shopping experience. It’s a thrift shop, but you still get some type of luxury experience as well.” A Long Island native, Rae moved to Connecticut last March and began looking for a commercial property. She settled on the historic Arcade Mall, built in 1889 and home to independently owned smaller businesses. “I saw the space and I loved it,” she said. “And even though Covid is going on, I just wanted to jump on the opportunity.” Rae serves as fashion consultant for her customers, offering both classic items that

never go out of style along with a selection of ongoing trends to keep shoppers up-todate. She sanitizes all items before putting them on the rack and handles whatever repairs might be required before apparel gets a price tag, which ranges between $5 and $20 per item. “I want to keep everything super affordable,” she said. “If I come across a designer item, I still keep it reasonable. But I would obviously have to raise the price a little bit when it comes to really high-end items.” Rae’s selection is mostly aimed at women, although she has a small men’s clothing selection and she is planning to expand into a children’s collection and offer artwork for sale. At the moment, Richual Boutique is open three days a week — Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Rae runs the store as a one-woman operation and balances her retail endeavor with part-time work as a case manager in a homeless shelter. “I went to school for psychology,” she said. “I also have worked for nonprofits since I was 17.” Rae is promoting Richual Boutique through Facebook and Instagram, along with signs posted in Bridgeport’s downtown. She has also opened the store to independent vendors who have set up tables to sell beauty supplies and jewelry, noting that these pop-up endeavors “bring in a crowd.” For the future, Rae envisions opening a second store on the 125th Street shopping district in Harlem. As for her first three months in business, Rae is satisfied with what she has achieved. “It’s obviously not as busy as it should be due to Covid,” she said. “But I can’t complain. I didn’t think anybody was going to walk in here and I prepared myself for the worst — and it turned out a little better than I thought. I’m doing okay and I’m thankful for that. I’m able to sustain this and my other job, so I’m going to keep it like this as long as possible.”

Expanding SALT cap tax relief

BY AMY PAULIN

T

he federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the Act) eliminated the full deductibility of state and local taxes (SALT), and capped deductions at $10,000. This law disproportionately hurts Democratic states like NewYork, where residents’ state and local taxes often exceed $10,000. To fight back, I’ve proposed legislation that would make the full SALT deduction available to partnerships and other passthrough entities. The proposal will be considered during the New York State legislative session which begins this month.

Relief for partnerships As it stands right now, the SALT cap only applies to deductions paid by individuals, but not by corporations. Since mem-

bers or shareholders of partnerships typically pay income taxes individually, rather than at the entity level, they are subject to the SALT cap. My proposed legislation however would allow New York state partnerships and other pass-through business entities to elect to pay a tax to New York state, for which they would get a full federal deduction, with the tax payments offsetting the partners’ New York state income tax. This setup would be fiscally neutral to New York state, but would allow partners to take the full SALT deduction, which would otherwise be limited to $10,000 if the partners paid their income taxes directly to New York state. Following the passage of the Act in 2017, several states, including New Jersey and Connecticut, passed similar laws allowing

pass-through entities to pay taxes at the entity level and receive a credit on their state income taxes to offset it, which avoids the SALT cap. On Nov. 9, 2020, the IRS issued a notice that stated they would allow this arrangement to apply to tax payments made on or after this date. This is an opportunity that should not be missed. Now that the IRS has approved the taxation structure for partnerships and pass-through entities, we should quickly pass my bill and give much needed relief to New Yorkers who have been disproportionately affected by the SALT cap.

that allowed deductions for contributions to charitable reserve funds in order to give relief to residents who had just lost the SALT deduction. The law gave counties, local governments and public school districts the option to authorize a real property tax credit of up to 95% of the amount of a property owner’s monetary contribution to the reserve funds. Later in 2018, however, the IRS issued regulations denying that a taxpayer who makes a contribution to a charitable reserve fund could receive a state or local tax credit. A subsequent IRS notice then announced that businesses would be entitled to a full deduction for their contributions, creating an arbitrary distinction between contributions made by businesses, whose full deductibility was preserved, and contributions made by individuals, which were not. In response to the IRS’ regulations and conflicting positions on charitable reserve funds, I formed and chaired a coalition of counties, cities, towns, villages and school districts called the Coalition for the Charitable Contribution Deduction (3CD), and filed a letter with and testified before the Treasury Department and the IRS, requesting the withdrawal of the proposed regulations under the Act which denied a full charitable deduction for donations from individuals to the charitable funds. In 2019, working with the village of Scarsdale, a lawsuit was filed against the IRS, with Scarsdale acting as plaintiff, seeking to overturn the IRS regulations as arbitrary and capricious, and therefore invalid. I’ve continued to take the lead role in the initiative, asserting that taxpayers should be entitled to the full charitable deduction for their donations to charitable reserve funds and similar vehicles. The lawsuit is ongoing. Together with the 3CD, we are hopeful that the IRS will issue new regulations that conform to established law and internal IRS rulings. We are continuing our challenge to the regulations in federal court. It is critically important that we take all of the actions we can to help minimize the impact to residents, many of whom are struggling financially due to the pandemic. The establishment of charitable reserve funds to give a SALT deduction to individual residents, and the allowance of a SALT deduction for partnerships and pass-throughs, would provide tax relief to many New Yorkers right now — at a time when they need it the most.

Suite Talk: Mary G. Gardiner, founding partner at The Blue Sandstone Group at Morgan Stanley practice out of Morgan Stanley’s headquarters in Purchase and we have branded our business as The Blue Sandstone Group. Interestingly, blue sandstone is the stone of ambition, courage and empowerment, and these are some of the core values of our practices.”

here will be a new presidential administration come Jan. 21, but despite the political change there will be the same sluggish economy and the same Covid-19 pandemic to deal with. For many people concerned about their finances, the near future offers more agitation than comfort. This week, our Suite Talk spotlight takes on an investing hue as Senior Enterprise Editor Phil Hall interviews Mary G. Gardiner, founding partner at The Blue Sandstone Group at Morgan Stanley.

From what I can gather, the European countries are having just as bad of a time, if not worse, regarding the Covid pandemic, and the Chinese economy is difficult to decipher where there is no means of independently auditing what is happening there. What is your opinion about investing overseas at this time? “It really gets down to an individual investor or a family’s unique needs and being able to put together a portfolio that will meet those needs. But in terms of Europe, China and other overseas economies, there’s so much change that’s going to be going on in the world and the one thing that we know that is constant is there is going to be this change.”

As 2020 recedes further away in the rearview mirror and 2021 looms ahead of us, what are you hearing from your clients regarding the concerns on their investments and the overall state of the economy? “We have a special passion about empowering women with their money and being able to help people with more complex situations. What we’re hearing from those clients is concern about the outcome of the election and what does that mean for their investments, for taxes, for estate planning and for their health care. And then we couple that with Covid in terms of how will that impact them going forward and how can we help. “With our clients, we think very carefully about how we can mitigate any blind spots and make sure their legacies are protected during these very, very difficult and volatile times. We take that step back, look at their goals and help them to plan during that process to be able to mitigate some of these issues that are at the forefront.” You mentioned empowering women with their money. How is it different to work with women investors vs. male investors? “Well, we women always have an opinion, right? (laughs) I think the most important thing in working with families is that we always make sure that everyone who’s part of that family is part of the conversation. In the past, women were not at the forefront of the finances. And in the olden days, it wasn’t until someone was widowed or divorced that a woman actually was empowered or had to really be in charge of their family finances. “Today, when we see the shift of baby boomers, we see that women are now the breadwinners in many cases and also the leaders in their families when it comes to finances. It’s not so much about how people are different, but acknowledging that there’s a change and how family

Mary G. Gardiner finances are conducted and being able to make sure that women are included in those discussions. That brings diversity of thought and makes for a better plan.” If you’re looking into investment vehicles and investment opportunities in this precarious point in time, what in your professional opinion are the strongest investments? “We won’t give specific advice about a particular investment, but I think that there are a couple of core values that are really important to think about, including the importance of diversification. Also, it’s not so much what are the best invest-

ments for someone, but how did those investments really fit into their goals and how can that team of investment experts be able to help them, you know, with those situations? Morgan Stanley is the largest wealth management firm and we have amazing resources in all areas, so we have the benefit of being able to pick and choose what’s really best for our clients.” What is the relationship with Morgan Stanley and The Blue Sandstone Group? “Our team, The Blue Sandstone Group, is actually part of Morgan Stanley. We are an all-women’s wealth advisory team who FCBJ

What have been some of the more interesting challenges you faced in 2020, and how have you overcome them? “It’s been a really, really difficult year. First and foremost, we really care about the families that we work with, so making sure that everybody’s OK has been very, very important to us. And we’ve seen so many people experience the loss of a loved one — it has been very difficult to call up and speak to one of your clients and find out they’ve lost their mom or they’ve lost their dad. “We’ve also seen many times that clients are rethinking their priorities, because they’re not sure that they really want to be going back into mass transit to get to work. Some are wondering if they can afford to retire early. “I think the silver lining has been that people are looking back and finding out what’s most important to them and how can they achieve those goals. We’ve been extremely busy with being able to help with those challenges and make sure if people are thinking about retiring early or doing something different that they have the financial resources and the plan in place to do that. “And I think the last thing is that we are all Zoom experts now. We were not experts on this platform nine months ago, and now through the new modes of communication we are pleased to be able to meet people in whatever way that works best for them.”

HERSTORY

123 Organize team packing for a client.

Organizing as easy as 1,2,3 BY KAREN SACKOWITZ ksackowitz@westfairinc.com

M

arla Alt’s friends knew she was making a good career choice as a professional organizer when they saw her closet. “All my sweaters were color coordinated and stored in plastic bags,” Alt says. “I always ran my closet like a clothing store; I thought that’s the only way you should do it.” Alt decided to become a solopreneur, launching 123Organize 15 years ago. In the early days, she would often bring her then-teenage son along to help. Things kicked up a notch five years later when

she was hired to help a friend get ready to move. “He was a single dad who just wasn’t going to be ready in time,” Alt says. “Basically it was being his wife through the move. I interviewed six different moving companies; it was so interesting. This was before Google and Yelp so I had to talk to each of them and learn all the ways movers approached a project.” Today, Alt runs her business from her Rye Brook home, employing five women on the management side and picking up five to 10 contractors per client assignment. In 2020, the company worked with 100 clients in Fairfield, Westchester and Bergen counties, as well as New York City. Flat rate pricing starts at $1,000, with projects ranging from a master closet organization to a multihome move, including packing, hiring movers, moving day supervision and elite unpack service. One of Alt’s project managers, lifelong friend Maxine Berg, just joined the team this past November to help with an

ever — growing workload. “My first on-site job was for a couple with two young children from the city. During Covid, they had stored most of their furniture and stayed with in-laws in Stamford. Then they bought a house in Chappaqua,” says Berg. “So their stuff was coming from all over the place. I was there, directing the movers and coordinating for the mom, using notes from Marla.” After moving day, the team tackled unpack day, when all of the family’s belongings were placed in their new home. During the unpack process, Alt says she organizes everything in ways she thinks will benefit everyone in the household. “What’s unique about our business is that because I wear every female hat — I’m a mom, a stepmom, a daughter, every female role you can play — I feel very comfortable improving people’s quality of life through organizing,” she says. “What better way to institute new habits than to start in your new home? We establish efficient systems from the FCBJ

get-go that can simplify things for everyone.” Demand for Alt’s services has gone up during Covid, thanks in large part to the New York City exodus and seller’s markets in Westchester and Connecticut, which is why she says she didn’t apply for state financial assistance. “My business spiked. I’m a believer that if I’m blessed, I leave it for those who need it,” she says. “Some in my position still would have taken it, but it’s not who I am as a person.” Looking into 2021, it doesn’t seem Alt’s good fortune will be abating any time soon. “January tends to be a slower month and February is usually when we start to pick up for the spring season; this year, that’s not going to be the case at all,” she says. “We work with a lot of Realtors as sources of referral, and they all say that it’s going to be a very big shift in 2021 for people, whether they’re downsizing or leaving the area, and that shift will cover the first eight months of the year.” WCBJ

New round of fed stimulus welcome – but will it be enough? BY KEVIN ZIMMERMAN kzimmerman@westfairinc.com

W

ith passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 in hand, businesses and financial institutions alike are expressing hope that the Covidcaused wolf at the door will be turned away yet again. Sara Tucker, chief lending officer and director of business banking at First County Bank, said that while customers and lenders alike had been frustrated by the months it took for Congress to pass the latest stimulus bill, the process should be much easier this time. “We fielded a lot of phone calls asking if the banks had any intel on the timing and what it would look like,” said Tucker, also an executive vice president at the Stamford-based firm. “We knew that any help coming (from the federal government) would be impactful, but whether it would be enough or not (to sustain businesses) was really hard to say.” Signed into law on Dec. 27, the new measure contains $325 billion for small businesses, including $284 billion in forgivable Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans; $20 billion for businesses in low-income communities; and $15 billion for economically endangered live venues, movie theaters and museums. “There has been a lot of guidance provided to the banks this time,” Tucker said, as opposed to the first PPP round in the spring, whose quick rollout by the Small Business Administration caught many lending institutions unprepared and uncertain as to how to proceed. “We were often working on the procedures and processes on the fly” back then, she said. As a result, smaller lenders tended to fare better than the big banks, she said. “We ended up gaining a lot of customers from the larger banks,” she added. “We were able to work with our customers as well as noncustomers, who said their bank couldn’t help them or was not being receptive to them. “And those customers are

sticking with us,” she continued, “and have brought all their deposits to us.” Tucker’s comments echoed those made by much smaller lenders as Bridgeport-based Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union — “Credit unions like to say we’re the first responders to a financial need,” its President and CEO John Holt told the Business Journal in April — and Newtown Savings Bank, which processed 766 PPP loans for $97 million. That bank’s president and CEO, Ken Weinstein, also said it had picked up customers. First County benefited in part by having an electronic processing system in place, Tucker said — even though its staff initially was dealing with PPP loans by hand due to the crush of applications. “We always want to be as responsive as possible, to be ready as soon as we can,” she said. Those efforts could be helped by an announcement made last month by Numerated. The Boston firm, which bills itself as “the leading business lending technology company for banks and credit unions,” said it is fully automating lending for the new round of PPP funding. The result, it said, will save lenders and borrowers thousands of hours of time and frustration. More than 25,000 bank and credit union employees have used Numerated to process more than $34 billion in PPP relief funds, protecting more than 250,000 small businesses and 2.3 million paychecks, according to the company. At the height of the program, Numerated’s platform was approving three PPP loans every second at a rate of $250 million per hour through its integrated system. Meanwhile, First County processed 1,144 loans for about $125 million, Tucker said. “For a bank of our size, that’s a lot — typically in a single year we’ll do maybe $140 million in much more customized, larger loans. About 50% (of its PPP loans) were for less than $50,000.” In the meantime, whether qualifying persons will ultimately receive $600 or $2,000 FCBJ

Sara Tucker, chief lending officer and director of business banking at First County Bank. stimulus checks from the federal government is still up in the air. For now, $600 checks are in process; Tucker estimated that some could arrive this week. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has dismissed efforts to increase direct payments to $2,000 as “socialism for rich people.” Both his home and that of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) were vandalized over the past weekend, apparently in frustration over the leaders’ failure to reach an accord. “Were’s (sic) my money” was scrawled on McConnell’s

front door in Louisville — a move McConnell characterized as a “radical tantrum” in a statement. When it comes to non-PPP loans in today’s climate, Tucker cautioned, “This is not necessarily the best time to go to a bank. A lot of industries have been doing quite well after the first three months (of the pandemic) — anything related to home sales, construction, landscaping, home appliances.” E-commerce, car dealerships, attorneys and accountancy firms are also doing well, she said. “We’re seeing a regular loan volume for those kinds of

business segments.” Otherwise, Tucker said, “a company has to have a business plan that makes sense and that takes into account the Covidrelated impact on the economy. We’re looking at the risk parameters very carefully.” Should there be another round of federal stimulus legislation, Tucker expressed the hope that it would be targeted to particularly hard-hit industries such as restaurants and hotels. “That’s what to me makes the most sense,” she said. “But it’s all ‘TBD.’ We have to see what happens with this round.”


50 years later, Down to Earth Living keeps gardens growing BY PHIL HALL phall@westfairinc.com

S

tuart Leventhal’s Pomona-based garden center Down to Earth Living just passed its half-century mark in business. And what is the secret to its longevity? “Good luck,” he quipped. “Luck plays an important role in life, my friend. Yes, we’ve been in business for 50 years and we’ve been blessed.” Leventhal said he launched his business because “I always loved plants. I was very passionate about plants — their natural beauty, their symmetry, their color, their structure. And that’s what led me to landscape design because I love plants and to be able to bring structure and symmetry to my projects.” Leventhal started solely as a landscape design business. “Initially, it was myself and maybe one or two other men,” he continued. “And I dug every hole when I put every plant in the ground. I did everything that was necessary to make the project complete and attractive. And then, we added things as we went along: “We added retail to the operation, and then we subsequently added wholesale to the operation.”

Stuart Leventhal, owner of Down to Earth Living, right, welcomes Rockland County Executive Ed Day to last month’s Christmas Wonderland showcase. Today, Down to Earth Living offers a garden center and nursery, an outdoor and patio furniture showroom, home décor and furnishings and during the tail end of each year Christmas trees and decorations. The company has approximately 40 people on its payroll and a customer base from across Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties, as well as New York City, Northern New Jersey and Fairfield County. Regarding his tristate customer base, Leventhal stated he was able to “penetrate those markets on the basis of the product we delivered — and I use the word ‘product’ broadly, meaning that when we were a design build company our reputation carried us forward. As we evolved into a more

of a retail-wholesale operation, our advertising program was used to penetrate those markets.” The company recently wrapped up its Christmas retailing, with a section of the Pomona store transformed into what Leventhal dubbed his “Christmas Wonderland.” “Around the first of October, it takes us approximately a month to build out the Christmas Wonderland,” he said. “It’s like creating a new store. And we then market the product and sell the product between November 1st and approximately New Year’s, and then we start to pack away, which generally take us two weeks.” Although 50 years have passed, Leventhal still maintains his passion for plants and works to ensure everyone shares his passion — including those with self-diagnosed brown thumbs. “We firmly believe that anyone can grow plants successfully if they follow the proper directions,” he said. “We do that with our warranty program for plants, which provides an instruction sheet that, if followed, will yield success. We believe that a successful customer will be a returning customer. And we’ve gone out of our way to encourage people to buy the proper amendments to their soil to assure their success.”

Leventhal also has tips for homeowners who find their lawns overrun with weeds and crabgrass. “You have to provide an environment in which the grass plants will prosper,” he said. “The competition — the weeds, the crabgrass, etc. — will find themselves at a disadvantage. For a successful lawn, what you really need is a good watering program, good fertilization and some deterrence for those plants that would not please you. It’s really a pretty easy situation when it comes down to it. But it requires work because what you’re doing is you’re working against Mother Nature in some instances where the dryness of a lawn would favor the crabgrass — with sufficient moisture, the grass plants themselves would prosper more readily.” As for the company’s next 50 years, Leventhal joked that he won’t be around for the centennial celebration — “I’m not old, according to me, but I’m not young” — but he was confident the next generation will keep the company prospering. “The four things that are responsible for the survival of Down to Earth are good luck, which I mentioned to begin with, quality and service and an incredibly talented staff. Without that, we could not be where we are, nor could we have achieved what we achieved.”

Chris White

BEACON CITY ADMINISTRATOR APPOINTED

The Bruce Museum in Greenwich has received a grant of $45,456 from Connecticut Humanities (CTH), the state’s affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and counterpart to the state’s Office of the Arts. The allocation is part of a relief package to 50 Connecticut museums and other nonprofit humanities organizations totaling $1.5 million, approved by the CTH’s Board of Directors on Dec. 21. CTH’s Covid Relief Fund for Museums

helps nonprofit museums and other 501c3 nonprofit humanities organizations with full-time staff and annual operating budgets of at least $450,000 to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Dr. Jason Mancini, executive director at Connecticut Humanities, said, “Like performing arts venues, museums and other public humanities organizations are dependent on various revenue streams that simply evaporated because of the pandemic. These are vital and vibrant

places in our communities that also need a bridge to the future….” “Connecticut’s museums are anchors in our communities. They give residents of all ages opportunities to engage with local history and culture and spaces for dialogue and connection,” Governor Ned Lamont said. “In addition, museums are part of the tourism and culture sector responsible for thousands of jobs. It is vital that we sustain Connecticut’s museums through this pandemic.”

Mayor Lee Kyriacou recently appointted Chris White as the next city administrator. White is currently deputy director of planning for Ulster County and served on the Beacon City Council in the 1990s. Outgoing City Administrator Anthony Ruggiero will be joining the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health in a managerial role at the end of January. White has been the deputy director of planning for Ulster County for the past nine years, managing multimillion-dollar projects, including repurposing of an unused school into a satellite community college campus, as well as planning and constructing rail trails throughout Ulster County. Previously, he spent 10 years managing the late Congressman Maurice Hinchey’s district office. White served as Beacon’s Ward Three councilmember from 1996-1997. he holds a Master in Public Administration degree from the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at SUNY Albany, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics from New York University. Beacon, New York, is located on the eastern shore of the Hudson River 60 miles north of New York City, with a population of 15,000. Originally a Native American settlement, the area was purchased from the Wappinger Tribe in 1683 and settled by Dutch and other Europeans, leading to the riverfront community of Fishkill Landing on the Hudson, and the mill community of Matteawan on Fishkill Creek. The two communities were incorporated together as the Ccty of Beacon in 1913, named for the Revolutionary War signal fires on Mount Beacon.
