(WFXR) – Senator Tim Kaine is saying that now is a good time for change to come to Virginia Military Institute.
As WFXR News reported yesterday, Superintendent General Binford Peay resigned from the institution.
Gov. Northam ordered an investigation last week into allegations of racism at VMI saying that change is long overdue.
In a conference call on Tuesday, Senator Kaine said the best way for the school to move forward is by breaking from its ties to the Confederacy.
Sen. Kaine says, as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, he is confident VMI will continue to train good citizen soldiers.
