Vermont has lost a valued community leader. David Dill, former secretary of transportation and Lyndon selectman, died Thursday evening at his home following an illness. He was 68.
Dill moved to Lyndonville in 1990 after a long career in the Air Force, including a stint in the Department of Defense working on North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) issues. Associates say he brought the same passion he had shown on the national level to his state and local public service in Vermont.
