Emma Savage started this petition to South Kesteven District Council

On Wednesday 20th October 2021, Cllr Ian Stokes used a racist remark whilst chairing a committee meeting for South Kesteven District Council. That remark shall not be repeated here. No councillor in the chamber challenged it. Footage of the remark has been widely seen on social media. Council Leader, Kelham Cooke, stated that Cllr Stokes was right to apologise and retract his remark.

This is not good enough. Cllr Stokes has been suspended from The Conservative Party but he needs to resign.  This petition has been started to put pressure on Cllr Stokes to do the right thing and resign.
