Washington ferries executive placed on leave
The Kitsap Sun reports that operations director Steve Rodgers was administratively reassigned to his home on July 3. Rodgersí son Josh, a ticket seller at the Fauntleroy terminal, was fired last December after a spot check revealed that $529 was missing from his working fund.
Josh Rodgers insisted that he just borrowed the money for gas and was going to pay it back the next day. Heís appealing his termination, and itís not clear whether his fatherís administrative leave is related.
A human resources consultant for the ferries wrote in a letter that it appeared Josh Rodgers may have received preferential treatment over the years. The letter, obtained through a public records request, said that while he had received six verbal or written warnings since July 2010, terminal supervisors never asked management for disciplinary action.
