Former tax commissioner’s memorial is today
MONTPELIER — Vermont political leaders and others are set to gather to remember Norris Hoyt, a former lawmaker and tax commissioner who died last month.
Hoyt, known as a happy warrior and someone who sought to level the playing field between the wealthy and average Vermonters, died of congestive heart failure.
The memorial is set for 4 p.m. today at the Norwich home Hoyt shared with his wife, Kathy Hoyt, a longtime top aide to former Gov. Howard Dean.
As a legislator and tax commissioner, Norris Hoyt worked on programs to reduce the property tax burden on farmers and guard against land speculation.
