New Jersey Transit, under scrutiny for its safety and financial practices, has removed its chief compliance officer amid an internal investigation after just six months on the job.
Nancy Snyder, an agency spokeswoman, declined to comment on the circumstances of Todd C. Barretta’s suspension, saying it was a personnel matter.
“Mr. Barretta is suspended without pay pending the outcome of an ongoing internal investigation,” Snyder said in an email. “He is no longer New Jersey Transit’s chief compliance officer. NJT has hired a new compliance officer starting Aug. 14.”
Barretta didn’t immediately respond to an email sent to his personal account. A mobile-phone number listed in his name wasn’t accepting voice messages, a text message went unanswered and a home number appeared to have been disconnected.
