Long-time IRE member Dunstan "Dusty" McNichol died unexpectedly Tuesday. He was 54.
McNichol, who contributed to the IRE Journal and spoke at IRE Conferences, was an active member of IRE since 1998. McNichol covered the New Jersey Statehouse for 10 years for the Star-Ledger "and was part of the team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2005 for the newspaper’s coverage of (then-New Jersey Gov. Jim) McGreevey’s resignation. In 2009, Mr. McNichol joined Bloomberg News and its Trenton-based State Government and Local Finance Team."
