OLYMPIA, Wash. —

State Transportation Secretary Lynn Peterson is clearing the decks and restarting the search for a new director of Washington State Ferries.

She sent department employees an email Tuesday saying that interim director George Capacci (kuh-PAH'-chee) withdrew from consideration over the weekend and she decided not to hire the other candidate, former Pierce County Executive John Ladenburg (LAD'-en-burg).

Capacci will stay on in an interim role and then return to his position as deputy chief of operations and construction.

The department had hoped to name a new ferry chief by June 20 to replace David Moseley, who resigned in April after six years in the top job.

Transportation Department spokesman Lars Erickson says the department will undertake a nationwide search for a new ferries chief.
