CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - The Delaware River Port Authority’s independent watchdog is quitting because he claims a hostile work environment has prevented him from issuing a report on the agency’s performance.

Inspector General Thomas Raftery III submitted his resignation on Monday.

The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill (https://on.cpsj.com/1mR5egg ) reports Raftery said several unnamed DRPA board members have interfered with his office. He claims the agency has made it difficult, if not impossible, to obtain information to perform effective audits.

His resignation will take effect on Oct. 17.

The DRPA owns and operates the PATCO commuter rail line and the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross toll bridges. The DRPA also owns the RiverLink Ferry.
