FLEMINGTON, NJ – Maintaining order at public meetings is sometimes a challenge for those conducting them.

Increasingly, it seems many rely on a police presence to help ensure order. At Raritan Township Committee meetings, Flemington-Raritan school board meetings and meetings of Borough Council here, a uniformed officer is usually on duty. It’s usually a pretty low-key presence, with the officer often engaging in friendly banter with those in attendance.

But sometimes tension arises. That’s what happened at Monday’s Borough Council meeting, when Mayor Phil Greiner demanded that resident Robert Shore address Councilperson Brian Swingle by including his title, rather than just his surname.

Did the mayor go too far in seeking respect for elected officials? You decide. The video runs 2:23.
