HARRISON, N.Y. - Tuesday's arraignment of Harrison Democratic Party district leader Maria Polera generated significant traffic and interest on Facebook across Westchester County. Several sites across TheDailyWestchester.net received reader comments on the story throughout the day.
Polera pleaded not guilty to charges that she ordered unsolicited pizza deliveries to the home of Mayor and Supervisor Joan Walsh and was released without bail.
She ran for receiver of taxes on the same ticket as Walsh twice in the past five years and lost both times.
Walsh said she received unsolicited pizza orders and one additional visit with Chinese food as many as 25 times in the last six to eight months. Local restaurants that were victimized by the prank include Halstead Avenue's Pizza 2000 and Domino's Pizza and said they lost money with each incident.
"If it was from Sal's in Mamaroneck, I'd say she deserves the mayor's thanks," David L. Lewis said in response to the post.
