Dirty politics and the Raritan Valley Coalition?

The Coalition advocates for transportation-related issues.
Are dirty politics at work in the Raritan Valley Coalition? The group, which advocates for a one-seat ride to New York and other improvements for NJT's Raritan Valley Line riders, is composed of representatives of communities serviced by the line -- including Plainfield -- and keeps up a website here.

I had been dimly aware that Plainfield was to host a meeting of the group, but had lost track of when it was supposed to be. Turns out it was recently.

But the meeting wasn't held in Plainfield. Why not?

Word in the street is that an unnamed elected official put pressure on RVC leadership to move the meeting site.
