The Saginaw chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is now calling for the resignation of Buena Vista Township clerk, Gloria Platko.
Members of the organization say they will also attend the next township board meeting to call for her removal from the board.
Platko was recorded calling township supervisor, Dwayne Paker the â??n-wordâ?? in a conversation with the township manager.
â??Someone who is as old as Ms. Platko is, has seen some of the civil rights issues and was part of the civil rights movement in this country, should understand that those sort of statements are unacceptable,â?? says Terry Pruitt, first vice president of the Saginaw chapter of the N.A.A.C.P.
In an interview with NBC25 News, Platko apologized to the Buena Vista community.
However, she has said she will not resign her position.
