SEATTLE (AP) - A senior official in the Washington state ferry system has been fired.

Former operations director Steve Rodgers confirmed to the Seattle Times (https://bit.ly/1zPx6TU ) that his employment was terminated on Thursday. He declined to comment further.

Washington State Department of Transportation officials would confirm only that an employee was terminated but would not confirm the employee’s name.

Rodgers had been on paid leave and under investigation since July.

Transportation officials have never explained why Rodgers was under investigation.

Rodgers has been with the ferry system since he was a senior at North Kitsap High School. He was promoted to operations director in 2007 and was paid $122,200 a year.
