Court date pushed back for woman accused in unwanted pizza delivery

The woman accused of sending unwanted pizzas to the mayor of Harrison was due in court today, however the court date has been set back another month.

Maria Polera was scheduled to appear before Judge Marc Lust after allegedly having dozens of unwanted pizza pies delivered to the home of Harrison Mayor Joan Walsh.

The former Harrison Democratic district leader was arrested in July. She is accused of sending the unwanted food to Walsh's home for nearly a year.

According to police, Polera used a blocked number to place all the orders and hid in her car around the corner to verify the deliveries.

Polera ran for tax receiver on the same ticket as the mayor and claims Walsh told her she lost the election due to offensive body odor and poor appearance.

Polera pleaded not guilty to the one count of harassment and six counts of theft of service.
