Dill was born in Anniston. He graduated from Anniston High School and Jacksonville State University. He and his wife, the former Phyllis Miller, have been married 27 years. Their son, Sonny, is a senior at the University of Alabama.
Dill is a member of the Industrial Development Board, the Jacksonville Tree Commission and Board of Adjustments. He serves on the executive board of the Boy Scouts of America, volunteers with the Knox Concert Series as concert night manager and is an elder in the Presbyterian Church.
Dill moved to Jacksonville from Anniston 12 years ago. He is the fifth generation on both sides of his family to reside in Calhoun County.
Dill works with his family business Anniston Steel and Plumbing, which has two divisions, Miller’s Steel and Miller’s Office Furniture. The business has operated in Calhoun County 93 years.
This isn’t Dill’s first run for office. In 2010, after the death of Rep. Lea Fite, Dill was one of five candidates who ran for that office in a special election. He came in second to K. L. Brown and conceded that race to Brown.
“I initially made the promise that I was going to cut government spending,” said Dill. “By conceding the race, I was able to save our state $50,000 in runoff election costs. I kept my promise.”
Dill said he sees this election as an opportunity to serve his community.
“When you live in a community, you want to give back,” he said. “I want to improve the quality of life for the citizens of our county and continue to work to bring new businesses and industry to our area while supporting the existing businesses.”
Dill said his flexible schedule will allow him the time needed to be available to the citizens of his district.
