COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) — A longtime Vermont lawmaker, Rep. Jim Condon of Colchester, has died at age 60.

His wife said he had been battling esophageal cancer before his death Thursday night. Condon, a Democrat, announced this spring that he would not seek re-election. He served seven terms in the House.

House Speaker Mitzi Johnson said Friday that Condon was a devoted public servant "fondly known for his booming voice and sense of humor, who represented his community of Colchester with great distinction."

Condon was also a longtime Burlington area radio personality who served as executive director of the Vermont Association of Broadcasters.

He is survived by his wife, fellow radio personality Ginny McGehee, and a son.
