More questions for Del. Terry Kilgore concerning his spot as chairman of the Virginia Tobacco Commission and its help of group run by his brother. Kilgore is reported to have voiced support in May for delaying a grant award for advanced manufacturing training centers in Southwest Virginia. The "Alliance for Manufacturing" was then advised by commission staff to hold discussions with the Scott County Economic Development Authority, which is led by Kilgore's brother. The Abingdon group agreed to alter its grant proposal in a way that benefits the Scott County Economic Development Authority and was awarded a $2 million grant last week. Terry Kilgore said he wasn't trying to help his brother's group but to bring needed workforce development to the area. (LM)
