Town supervisor candidate denies allegations of impropriety

MOUNT PLEASANT – Independent Mount Pleasant town supervisor candidate Anthony D’Aria flatly denied charges lodged against him Wednesday by Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore.

D’Aria was charged with five felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument for attesting to the validity of all of the signatures on an opportunity-to-ballot for a write-in Republican Committee member primary race.

Andre Turcot, D’Aria’s campaign spokesman said the accusations are “nothing but a flagrant attempt to derail his campaign for Mt. Pleasant supervisor.” Turcot said the charges are “politically motivated.”

D’Aria, who is running on the “We the People” line, will face incumbent Republican-Conservative Supervisor Joan Maybury in the November election.
