My column today on the state of New York’s STAR registration program brought a note from city of Rye resident Ted Carroll, who wanted to set the record straight regarding former Rye Mayor Doug French, who was found to have STAR exemptions on two properties in the city. His STAR exemption at 13 Richard Place was revoked in 2012, and he paid the state close to $17,000 for his ill-gotten tax breaks.
Carroll says it was city residents who blew the whistle on French.
He sent along the well-produced 18-minute long investigative video that details their case against the former mayor. It even has background music to build the drama!
