Fairfield Deputy Mayor files harassment complaint against former Mayor

Postponed until 06/02/14 at 11 a.m.

On Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 11 a.m., the Millville Municipal Court will conduct a hearing on Fairfield Township Deputy Mayor JoAnne Servais' harassment complaint against former Fairfield Mayor Michael K. Sharp.

According to Servais' complaint, which is on-line here, Sharp, despite being told to the contrary, kept accusing Servais "at every public meeting and sometimes in executive session" of owning a business called J & R Servais Building, LLC.  According to Servais, the business is actually owned by her son, who lives in Rosenhayn. She alleged that her business ownership is Sharp's "main subject at every [Township Committee] meeting" and that Sharp yelled at her, stood up "in a threatening way and pointed his finger at [her] face."

Servais alleges that Sharp's conduct violation N.J.S.A. 2C:33-4(c) which makes it a petty disorderly persons offense to engage in "a course of alarming conduct or of repeatedly committed acts with purpose to alarm or seriously annoy such other person."

The hearing will be held at 12 S High St, Millville, New Jersey and is open to the public.  Anyone who plans to attend should call the court at 856-825-7000 Ext: 7619 the day prior to the hearing to ensure that the matter has not been postponed.
